Halfway Through the Battle for Mosul (35 photos)

in Photo Nerd by

Three months ago, thousands of Iraqi and Kurdish troops, supported by the United States, France, Britain, and other western nations, began a massive operation to retake Iraq’s second largest city of Mosul from ISIS militants. At this stage, Iraqi government troops have announced that they have gained control of the eastern half of Mosul. Advancing into Mosul has been a slow and costly effort, as ISIS militants fortified and defended each neighborhood. As soldiers solidify their gains in the east, and some refugees return to their homes, Iraqi forces are gearing up to cross the Tigris River to push ISIS out of western Mosul as well. Also, see previous stories on the battle for Mosul here and here.

Iraqi forces battled the last holdout jihadists in east Mosul after commanders declared victory there and quickly set their sights on the city’s west, where more tough fighting awaits.

Reenacting the Battle of Waterloo (26 photos)

in Photo Nerd by
Two hundred years ago, the decisive Battle of Waterloo was fought near Brussels, in present-day Belgium, on June 18, 1815. Napoleon's French army of 93,000 soldiers was defeated on the battlefield by the 125,000 troops of the Seventh Coalition, which was made up of armies allied with the United Kingdom. Tens of thousands of men were killed by cannon fire, bullets, bayonets, and swords in violent skirmishes that were fought at a distance and face to face in the Belgian countryside. The loss of the battle ended Napoleon's "Hundred Days" of restored power in France, resulting in his abdication and bringing in a new era of European peace after decades of war. Over the weekend, thousands of reenactors donned period uniforms on the battlefield to commemorate the historic battle.
