I found quite interesting. Worth a look.

I would have liked that with at least a little caption on each one however. Some are definitely WTF material that deserves some explaining.

Each dog was fitted with a 10–12-kilogram (22–26 lb) mine carried in two canvas pouches adjusted individually to each dog. The mine had a safety pin which was removed right before the deployment; each mine carried no markings and was not supposed to be disarmed. A wooden lever extended out of a pouch to about 20 centimetres (7.9 in) in height. When the dog dived under the tank, the lever struck the bottom of the tank and detonated the charge. Because the chassis was the most vulnerable area of these vehicles, it was hoped the explosion would gut the vehicle - Wikilink for this.

Yeah. It's pretty God awful stuff.

In Focus and The Big Picture are a great resource for photojournalism though. So much stuff that you might not otherwise see.
