German executioners enjoy the death of a Russian nurse. Smiles all round. Murderer nearer the camera seems disinterested, cigarette in hand. Most likely, the photographer said "Cheese!" Callous beasts.

Men of the Wermacht view the hanged corpse of a young girl. Probably a Russian resistance member (though she conspicuously wears a red cross band on her right arm), she likely was tortured and raped before her death. Of the soldiers in the picture, only the one nearest the camera is unsmiling, and his face betrays only indifference for his victim. Some of these men probably had daughters the same age as the girl they hanged. Still, they smile.

Charlie Haughey's Vietnam War Photos Rediscovered. Unidentified soldier pauses for a cigarette, date and location unknown. Charlie Haughey was drafted at 24 in 1967 and from March 1968 until May 1969, Haughey established an archive of more than 2,000 negatives, documenting the struggles of his brothers in arms. Photos rediscovered 2012.
“Charlie Haughey shot nearly 2,000 images between March 1968 and May 1969 before taking the negatives home. And there they sat, out of sight, but not out of mind, for 45 years, until a chance meeting brought them out of dormancy and into a digital scanner...When the digitization hit 1,700 negative scans.” http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2013/03/a_soldiers_eye_rediscovered_pi.html

As the war took a turn from worse to disastrous, Nazi propaganda warned German civilians what would happen if the Russians came. The tragic irony is that this image wasn't too far removed from what did happen once the Red Army came in contact with the German population.

German propaganda about the Soviets. Trigger warning, pretty graphic. Don't know how I feel about this, my (German) mom grew up terrified of the Soviets after what they did to her grandmother in a "refugee" camp.

Unidentified senior Japanese officer is shot by Chinese executioner (This is not General Tani Masuo, as originally posted,the man who oversaw the Nanking Massacre, and was executed in March 1947 after being found guilty of war crimes by the war tribunal set up by Chiang Kai-shek. Masuo’s executioner was a Chinese veteran who survived the Battle of Nanking.)

This is one of the most widely circulated photos of Nazi war crimes. A German army officer delivers finishing shots to executed hostages in Pancevo, Yugoslavia. Contrary to postwar claims, the regular German army was as deeply involved in the death of civilians as the SS and other murderer formations.

Japanese soldiers play with a "doll"-- a human baby impaled with a bayonet. Bestiality at its most brutal. I wouldn't have hesitated to shoot both of these bastards in places that would have made them die a slow death.

France. French soldiers sing the national anthem at the beginning of World War I in August 1914. This "war to end all wars" might seem like ancient history, but it changed the world forever. It transformed the way war was fought, upended cultures and home life and stimulated innovations that affect us today. With more than 30 combatant nations and nearly 70 million men mobilized, World War I profoundly destabilized the international order.
WW1: German KIAs at Vimy Ridge. The Battle of Vimy Ridge was fought primarily as part of the Battle of Arras, in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France. The main combatants were the Canadian Corps, of four divisions, against three divisions of the German Sixth Army.
