The Elephant and Castle underground station during the “Blitz” (7 September 1940 - 10 May 1941), which was the sustained bombing of London and many other towns and cities in Britain by Nazi Germany during World War II. Photograph by Bill Brandt.
By the end of November 1941, the Germans had already suffered 250,000 casualties in Russia. In December, the Russians began their counterattack. When first published, Baltermants’ photo of charging soldiers was criticized as it depicted “half-a-man,” and was thus inconsistent with socialist realist standards. It has since become one of the most enduring war photos ever taken. (via)
This is a great photo of the savagery of battle in the place where the Nazis really were defeated, the Eastern Front.
