Stun­ning im­agery from through­out his­tory

An oil well burns brightly in the Kuwaiti desert, sil­hou­et­ting an aban­doned Iraqi tank dur­ing the First Gulf War. After the Amer­i­can-led coali­tion launched Op­er­a­tion Desert Storm to lib­er­ate an­nexed Kuwait, re­treat­ing Iraqi forces set hun­dreds of wells on fire. Many of these fires burned un­con­trol­lably for sev­eral months.
