Events in Pictures
The Events in Pictures series presents images from recent and distant history – from the world of politics, fights and battles, natural catastrophes, plus some fascinating moments in sport.
Some events in a person’s life, and in society as a whole, have a profound effect on the course of human history. If certain events had not occurred, today’s world might be a very different place. Other events are strangely botched, as if predestined for everlasting oblivion.
