Thought I might kickoff another interesting thread.

It's about artwork in either WW1, WW2, modern day etc..

I've seen this painting before, and it always strikes me as odd. There is a large russian attack in front and yet only one person appears to care or be firing at it, no one is manning the MG, and there's some guy who apparently sees, and is shooting at, Russians behind them but no one seems to notice or care either.   The NCO is telling a pull my finger joke to the bored guy next to him, and the guy on the far left is staring at a beetle crawling over the straw.  It's a very confusing painting.

I think it perfectly captures the absurdity of a war when you put it like that...

Anyway let's try some less "realistic" artwork, I found this one a while ago:

Perhaps you're right. (I lossed it when you described the NCO by "pull my finger joke" ;D)

Anyway, I have always loved this one:

I immediately thought of the Typhoon pics when you posted this thread. You might recognise this one from a signature I use

Unfortunately most Typhoon attack pics are about destroying Tigers which is not very representative.
