War Images.Some of the photos can be harsh or unpleasant. War is a disgrace, is cruelty, misery, tears and death. But I believe that war must be shown with all its consequences, not as it is often portrayed by the media. On the other hand will try to include pictures that bring us a little closer to the conflict, its quirks and conflicts. Finally will try to add a brief description to each photo for informational purposes. I hope you find this site of interest.
