Over ninety years ago during World War I, British and German soldiers put down their weapons, walked out into the desolation of No-Man’s Land and shook hands. This was the Christmas cease fire of 1914. In a moment unique to the First World War, troops were given a moment of respite from the horrors of the war when soldiers exchanged gifts, looked at each others’ family photographs and played friendly games of football with the enemy. by carrie

This rare color photograph, from May 1945, only days after the war’s end, shows recently-surrendered German soldiers interned in a British Prisoner Of War Camp in occupied Germany.    Hundreds of thousands of German soldiers spent weeks and weeks in such open-air camps before they were discharged and allowed to return to their homes.    The many dugouts must be beds the soldiers created for themselves. It must have been warmer sleeping in by alyssa

They were nicknamed Buffalo Soldiers as a sign of respect by their Native American enemies as well as to denote the similarity of their hair to that of the buffalo.

On the morning of March 11, 1918 a Private at Fort Riley, KA reported to the hospital with flu-like symptoms. By noon over 100 fellow soldiers had joined him. It's believed these were the first cases of the 1918 influenza epidemic, later dubbed The Spanish Influenza. It spread quickly, traveling with US soldiers to the front. By the end of 1918 between 50-80 million people had died, making it even deadlier than WWI itself ~ by essie

The images are one of the first reportage series to be made of British youth culture, presenting pictures of working class girls in Neo-Edwardian dress—a fascinating counterpoint to their drape-coated and drainpipe-wearing male counterparts the Teddy Boy.

Under the supervision of American soldiers, German civilians from Nammering are forced to view the corpses of prisoners exhumed from a mass grave near the town. The victims were shot by the SS during an evacuation transport from Buchenwald to Dachau. The civilians were made to walk barefooted so that they could feel the sometimes blood-wet mud on their skin. by berta

No survivors were found on board the Ourang Medan in June, 1947, but what was most disturbing was the nature of the bodies, all frozen in place looking up towards the sun, their arms outstretched, mouths gaping, and a look of immense horror on all their faces. A trip to the communications room revealed the author of the SOS messages, also dead, his hand still on the Morse sending key, eyes wide open and teeth bared. Strangely, there was no sign of wounds or injuries on any of the bodies. by connie
