Aerial photographs of European cities during World War II have been made available on Google Earth, giving internet users a real glimpse of the smashed-up landscape of war.

Taken between 1935 and 1945, the snaps record a series of chilling views: Warsaw's ghetto and bombed-out old town; the decimated Renaissance bridge in Florence; and bomb craters in Berlin.

The red roofed building is the Royal Castle. The white square bottom-right is Mariensztat Square.
