WW2 - German Commando executed by American Military Police

WW2 - German Commando Gefreiter Wilhelm Schmidt executed by American Military Police on 23 December 1944 after his capture near Aywaille on 17th December 1944. The Germans being executed were part of Otto Skorzeny's team of commandos that penetrated American lines during the Battle of the Bulge (Operation Greif). They were captured in American uniforms, and their mission was to blow up a bridge. A lack of vehicles, uniforms, and equipment limited the operation and it never achieved its original aim of securing the Meuse bridges. Date: 1944

Satirical political cartoon, The Fall of Icarus

Satirical political cartoon, The Fall of Icarus, showing a plump, naked Earl Temple (Richard Temple-Nugent-Brydges-Chandos-Grenville, 1st Duke of Buckingham and Chandos, 1776-1839) with manufactured wings trying to fly after his father, Buckingham (George Nugent-Temple-Grenville, 1st Marquess of Buckingham, 1753-1813), whose wings are labelled Tellership of the Exchequer (the position he held in the government). Temple's wings are disintegrating and he is about to fall onto a pointed stake labelled Stake out of Public Hedge. The head of George III superimposed on the sun watches the scene.
