Haunting Photos of World War II Taken by Writer James Allison


While history books can teach us a lot of things there is to know about the World War II, nothing can capture the brutal reality as well as photos of real people who were affected by it.

During WWII, war photographer and writer James Allison working for the Houston Press noticed that many photos not printed in the newspaper were discarded. He asked the permission Houston Press to collect and save the discarded photographs. As the end of the the war, Allison collected more than 4,600 photographs of World War II. In August 1977, James Allison donated his collection to the Arkansas Museum of Science and History. Thanks to him, we can now view the haunting images that will remind us of the brutality and great suffering of war at the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History.
