  • Famous images from WW2

    We all have our favourite pics of weapons and battles that were taken during WW2 so why not compile these into one thread!

    It could be a bomber, a ship, a soldier... anything that you think is famous or should be considered worthy as a classic image from many of the battles fought around the world.

    One classic is taken from Iwo Jima.

    While I cannot post all mine at once I'll just add one to start with... a B-25 attacking ships in New Guinea.
    "In modern war... you will die like a dog for no good reason."
    Ernest Hemingway.

    Mark Twain.

            Britain stood alone amidst the flames, but unbowed.

              Eagles may fly; but weasels aren't sucked into jet engines!
