Stun­ning im­agery from through­out his­tory

A French sol­dier raises his bay­o­net towards a Ger­man civil­ian in a city in the Ruhr. The in­dus­trial re­gion was oc­cu­pied by France after Ger­many de­faulted on its sig­nif­i­cant war debts. They had been en­forced in the Treaty of Ver­sailles but were too large for the econ­omy to cope with and re­sulted in eco­nomic dis­as­ter and the even­tual fall of the Weimar Repub­lic.
