It’s official. War kisses during WWII were the social memes of their time. Here a soldier pauses in the mud of Italy to accept a kiss from a local child as his buddies and dog look on in the background. Sending this home to your sweetheart and mom probably earned you big points…

This photo inside the ghetto of a dying child was taken illegally by Wehrmacht Sergeant Heinz Joest on Sept. 19, 1941. He spent his 43rd birthday illegally inside the ghetto taking pictures. A documentary about his day was made in 1991 titled "A Day in the Warsaw Ghetto: A Birthday Trip in Hell."

"Battles of the Civil War" Infographic

This photo demonstrates the often monstrous sizes of WW1 guns aiming to hurl huge projectiles as far as 25 miles. This one is most likely a coastal gun, its breach being calibrated by technicians. Firing these monsters required the crew to stay well clear of the gun -- as far as 50 meters from the breach -- and fire it by a pull cable. The resulting blast easily blinded those uncaring ones who insisted on looking. The force of the combustion required re-sighting the gun after every shot.

Faces of the Depression- January, 1937 Looking closely at the full size photo, I'm amazed by the large muscular fingers and hands of the boy. His eyes show concern with a serious glare and his mother, with bruised leg, recognizes him with her extended arm. The children of the depression had to grow up faster than any other generation in recent history.
