    #2 The famous battle of Los Angeles in 1942. At the time, anti-aircraft defenses spotted several glowing dots over the city, and the guns opened fire. It was thought to be a Japanese air raid, however… No aircraft were hit. Some believe that the glowing dots were UFO

It was sent to the editor of the Komsomolskaya Pravda. He was ordered to destroy it. However, it was never done, and the man risked his life if the security services had found the photo.

    #8 A Serbian soldier sleeps together with his father, who visited him in one of the many World War I trenches. The photo was taken in late 1914/1915 and the losses among soldiers were skyrocketing. All because of outdated military tactics that were not adapted to new weapons like machine guns

It officially ceased operations in 2005 after an agreement with the UK government, but there are still extremist militants that have not given up the fight
