war that cost countless millions of soldiers and civilians their lives.
It was one of the darkest chapters in our history, a time of great
heroics, and great cruelty. These photos document some of the moments of
this epic yet haunting time in our history. I hope that future
generations will not forget the lessons that war has taught us. These
photos should help them remember.
