List Rules Vote up the photos that capture the feelings of wartime most poignantly.

The 21st century is rife with conflict on a global scale, and the development of photo techniques allowed wars and battles to be covered like never before. But the physical front lines of war aren't the only images depicted here; hospitals, urban uprisings, and even soldiers at play come alive in these explicit, unapologetic, and, in the case of a tree in the DMZ, ridiculous photos. Their variety reveals changes in not only how warfare evolved over the years but also how daily life shifts as well. Men, women, children, and even animals all feel the effects of conflict in these wartime images.
