I meant that after Japan left again they'd shoot back up even higher than they are now.
The actual photo was taken somewhere in Siberia.
Paul von Hindenburg picking his nose.
Late in the war, due to manpower shortages, the British Army exhibited a certain ambivalence towards execution by firing squad.
Eleutherios Venizelos signing the glorious Sevres treaty
The American Aircraft Carriers; Saratoga, Enterprise, Hornet, San Jacinto, at Alameda, 1945.
The Conference of Lausanne about to cancel the terms of the Treaty of Sevres.
A crowd gathers in Munich to celebrate Germany entering the First World War. I just love how at this time Hitler is a completely insignificant figure in the crowd.
Er, what? What is that photo?
An old Bugfatty family reunion photo
Isn't that Lenin - third from right?
What's the source for that? I don't believe that is Hitler - AFAIK, he didn't acquire his trademark toothbrush moustache until long after the war, when he was already active in politics.
During WWI (and, I guess, before the war) he had a more normal, handlebar type moustache.
French resistance fighters being executed by teh nazis.
Doubt very much it's Hitler. Hitler had a traditional German Prussian moustache prior to the war, and only shaved it to the toothbrush so that he could wear the German gas mask in WWI
Hitler is far left
WRT Emperor Jackel's photo...
I'd be less skeptical that this is actually Hitler if I wasn't able to spot at least three Thomas Deweys in the same crowd.
WRT Nonconformist's photo
Good catch. While Hitler isn't wearing his trademark mustache at this point, I think it's noteworthy that the dog is. Was this perhaps the angry little Lance Corporal's inspiration?
IIRC Hitler himself confirmed that was him in his lifetime. He mentioned being in that crowd in Meink Kampf, and people went looking through photographs for him.
An euzonas during the Balkan wars. Greek light infantry.
Oooooo a skirt cut above the knees. Pretty riskue for 1908?
Maybe in Greece....
