The shot was taken in March 1945 in the midst of the battle of Iwo Jima - an American soldier gives a Japanese soldier a smoke. Interestingly, the Japanese 1.5 days lay with a grenade, waiting for the Americans, but missed. They gave him a cigarette in exchange for refusing to resist.

Sergeant of the 36th Engineer Regiment, 45th Infantry Division of the United States Army Louis Magolin look at the M4A1 "Sherman" tank from the 191st Tank Batallion of the US Army, which was hit in The La Salle area in France. The tank was hit by a German PZ.Kpfw. IV tank, killing two crew members.

And second one is some self propelled vehicle, no idea what...

Brutal fact of WW2 in Soviet Union- raped and brutally killed Slavic woman, above standing smiling German military, shown no emphaty, no feeling.

All the horrors of war in one picture... Sad, so sad, even she's in uniform as I can see this is no way to treat people even in war, even P.O.W. -s

Helmet of a soldier of the Iraqi Fedayeen Saddam organization. It was established in 1996 and was led by Uday Saddam Hussein, Saddam's eldest son. In fact, a kind of Blackshirts Baas. The helmet was created directly under the influence of Darth Vader, because Uday is a fan of Star wars.
