The real cost of war

Bicycle postage stamp

t's never too late to solve a mystery, or to set the record straight. In the 70 years since the attack on Pearl Harbor, a dramatic photo of female firefighters has been published many times in magazines, history books and online as a depiction of action on Dec. 7, 1941. We published it this past week on msnbc.com. Now, with the help of our readers, we've located one of the women, who says the photo was definitely not taken on that day.

Ana de Mendoza, Princess of Éboli (1540-1592). She lost an eye in a mock fencing duel when she was 14, and she spent her last 13 years in prison after (allegedly) revealing state secrets... Badass princess.
