Following up on a thread from a few weeks ago, I felt like having a more specific focus than simply historic photos. I have come across some fascinating war photos I felt worth sharing. Some of these photos show elements of war I was not familiar with before. I hope others find them as interesting as I do.

Doggy gas masks from WW1.

Dazzle ships, WW1. Designed to make it difficult to estimate a target's range, speed, and heading of a ship.

Those Japanese kamikazi look like they might be in elementary or middle school.
