Interior of Taku Fort, China, 1860.

Photograph by Felice Beato (1825-1907), 2nd China War, 1860.

The corpse-strewn interior of the fort is testament to the savagery of the fighting that took place there. The Chinese defenders suffered terribly, not only from the ferocity of the Anglo-French attack, but also because in their chaotic retreat from the forts they fell victim to their own defensive spiked ditches.
