War Is Hell Photos

Frozen corpses of German Soldiers at Stalingrad, probably February 1943.
Burned to death Iraqi soldier in the hatch of an APC during one of the Gulf Wars. He looks pretty pissed off.

Mussolini, his mistress and other Italian Fascists meet a bad end in Milan near the end of WWII in Europe in 1945.
Russian soldiers unfurl the red Soviet flag over the unused since the 30s Reichstag, during the capture of Berlin in April 1945. I've always liked this photo because the soldiers look about the same size as the architectural sculptures. Almost all of the soldiers on top of the Reichstag that day carried submachine guns, PPS 42s or PPSh 41s, but they also carried German handguns rather than Soviet designs. They guy helping the soldier with the Soviet flag has two watches on.
Yakov Iosifovich Dzhugashvili, Stalin's oldest son, captured during Operation Barbarosa, lies dead across the high voltage wire at the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp on April 14, 1943, or so the Germans claimed.
