    Default The Most Dramatic Photos of World War II

    Hello everyone,
    To kick start the launch of our new website, I'm going to post a list of some of the most dramatic images taken during World War II.

    Warning: Some photos are graphic and not recommended for children. A bigger version of each photo can be downloaded by clicking on the photo.

    If that's how "old timers" in the US army shoot rifles then all I can say is thank f*** for the US Navy. He won't hit anything like that, and frankly the recoil if he fired like that would probably knock him on his arse anyway. He's posing, nothing else.

    very impressive list of photos.
    However IMO this is ... a bit single-side or biased.
    Firstly coz here is absolutly absent the photos taken from the Eastern front- the most bloody part of the European compain.

    i had a textbook once, it portrayed a very good picture of us soldier ontop of some ruins in munich in '45, in the background theres a chruch which he's looking upon which is relatively undamaged. I dont know the picture's name but i also recognized an m-1 carbine over his shoulder. Anybody know of it??

    also i think it may have been good if at the time there were some photos circulating of Japanese children being treated nicely by Gi's (being given candy or some such), might have done some good

    Well sure i could get you a lot of links fo instance one of my favorite
    http://victory.rusarchives.ru/index.php?p=3
    the collection of Russian state arhive.
    I/m not sure about copyrights, but you found out somewhere those photos above and all ok, right
    However i do offer you the better way.
    Just ask us to prepeare the list of simular impressive photos form a Eastern front.
    I mean the photos of most great events of Eastern front.
    Sure this is subjective ( less or more) therefore i think we need to keep this project opened for other members.
    For instance the Undeground resisitence in European states should be presented here also.
    So the our Polish ,Ukrainian and Croatians friend could help us to find a nteresting photos
    But from my side i could find and collect the most interesting list of photos from the Eastern front.( about 20-30 photos)
    If you agree just say.

    Cheven, notice the bottom of the site says: "Использование цифровых копий фотодокументов, представленных на сайте "Победа. 1941-1945" - распространение в Интернет (включая размещение на сайтах), в ином электронном или печатном виде - допускается только с письменного разрешения соответствующего архива."

    If you can get us permission to post some of the pictures on our site, then I'll do it!

    Excellent snapshots, my dear Mr. Admin, although I am afraid that I do have some bad news for you: at least 8 black & white snapshots already presented here by you actually were previously printed (and consequently legally protected!) in a truly magnificent book "World War II - 50th Anniversary Commemorative Edition" (With forewords by Viscount Montgomery of Alamein, Oberburgermeister Manfred Rommel and John S. D. Eisenhower). - Colour Library Books Ltd, 1989. I am not an expert in this case, but I am strongly suggesting a professional legal assistance in this specific case.

    On the other hand, I think that the following picture still is unprotected. It was printed in a Hungarian book called "Az Emberiség krónikája" – Officina Nova, Budapest 1988 ISBN: 963-783-560-1, p. 939:



    June 1940 - French citizens are forced to flee burning town of Metz

    Professional legal support is, however, recommended in this case too...
