Storming of the fortress Ghizni in Afghanistan by the British on 23 July 1839, by Wunder
This was one of the major engagements of the First Anglo-Afghan war (1839-1842) in which the British Empire tried to gain control of Afghanistan in rivalry with Russia, part of the Great Game.

What on earth are those Lancers doing there? Speaking of Ghizni (or Ghuznee or Ghazni or whatever bizarre phonetic spelling affixed on by the British) I’m terribly fond of these eyewitness watercolors by Lieutenant Wingate-

    Minutes after midnight, the American 101st Pathfinders jump into Normandy, and establish drop zones for 101st Airborne Paratroopers to follow. Their objective: capture the town of Sainte-Mère-Église, seize the major exits to Utah Beach, and gain control of the Western flank of Normandy.

    Lt. Eugene Brierre, an aide in Division HQ to Major General Maxwell Taylor of the 101st Airborne, leaps with Taylor as he makes his qualifying jump that morning. PFC Ed Sabo makes his jump as a member of the Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment in the same dark skies over Normandy.

    Brierre’s American flag armband and Sabo’s helmet are now part of the collection at The National WWII Museum.

U.S. Army soldier Ruediger Richter gazes aloft as a helicopter prepares to land to pick up the body of a fallen soldier killed by mortar fire in South Vietnam on Aug. 14, 1966. The image came to be known widely as “The Agony of War.”
Richter said the famous photograph means little to him. It was but a split second along a road to hell and back. “Just a moment in time,” he said. Only 25 at the time, he is now 73 years old,  PAUL EPLEY/U.S. ARMY
