Raising the Hammer and Sickle over the Reichstag (Photographer: Yevgeny Khaldei)

Despite being one of the most iconic wartime photographs in history, this photo, supposedly taken right after the Soviet victory at the Battle of Berlin, was actually staged by the photographer some few days after the Germans had surrendered.
Nevertheless, this photo is still supremely badass.
