The Kremlin bombed

One of the iconic images of the war, captured by Margaret Bourke-White on 26th July 1941.

Margaret Bourke-White was a pioneering journalist and photographer, responsible for many iconic images during her career. She was one of the first female war photographers and the first American female journalist to operate in a combat area. She had arrived in Moscow at the outbreak of war with Germany. On the 26th July she took these striking images of the German air attack on the Kremlin, pictures that soon received world wide attention and continue to feature prominently amongst images of World War II to this day. Full resolution images are available from LIFE.
