Spoils of war

This gallery really express and shows devastation the war around the world. Military men risking their lives to fight for their country.

The images content refer to the praise to the heroic deeds of King John III Sobieski after the rise of Vienna. The glory of the Vienna victor was widely talked about in the entire Europe. Sobieski and his trusted men fuelled these legends, carefully developing the legend, closely connected with the king's true motive. It is not surprising that in such favourable circumstances there appeared numerous commissions for pictures which would permanent immortalize the accomplishment of the triumph through various artistic means.
As long as we could remember there has been war and in this image it shows how war has been apart humanity. In this picture we see Arab descendants fight to the death in a battle. We also see a mans head being held in the air to the right of the picture showing us the seriousness in the battle.
In this brutal image tells a crazy story, in July 1943, Brigadier-General Rennie's 154th Brigade attack Gerbini airfield. The compound they attack includes deep wire, machine guns and tanks. After three hours of brutal fighting the objective was taken, but casualties were heavy.
In this scene we see the aftermath of a attack on soldiers the Western Front in August 1918 as witnessed by the artist. The weapon of choice was mustard gas and it was as an indiscriminate weapon causing widespread injury and burns. The painting shows how their relative lack of protective clothing,and the impact and extent of the gas attack.
In this image we see the bodies of soldiers laying on the ground after being killed in battle. This is a scene that is common amongst war victim.
In every war there has been casualties, what we see here is a inside look to the nurses and doctors had to see every moment they were on call. Soldiers seriously injured being carried in by the numbers some are minor and others are life threatening. Sometimes the rooms aren't even big enough to hold the amount of patients they are receiving.
With the long cold night and hot days germs and viruses were a common thing to spread through camps.In this picture soldiers are being checked to make sure that they are in good health.We also see a soldier off to the side with a unpleasant look on his face like he just received some bad news.
This work is based on Spencer's experiences with the 68th Field Ambulance.Around the middle of September in 1916 the 22nd Division made an attack on Machine Gun Hill on the Doiran Vardar Sector and secured it for a few nights. while this was taking place the wounded passed through the dressing stations in a never ending cycle.
In this image we see a lost wounded individual walking amongst skeletons and dead bodies. This is a scene Alan Moore witness while in a concentration camp.For three days he observed drew and took pictures of the skeletal survivors and their persecutors, group of soldiers who were forced to bury their victims. On his return home to Australia Moore used his sketches to paint what he had seen.
In this picture we see a mass grave site to the victims and casualties of war. For family with love ones that have served and died, this is probably one of the hardest things to see. John has chosen the moment because it was a brutal reminder that life goes on regardless.
