Pregnant women in war zones

Death from violent conflict is a little acknowledged cause of maternal mortality. In times of war, the focus is usually on the male soldiers—yet an estimated 140 000 women die in conflict every year.1 An unknown proportion of these women are pregnant at the time of death, adding to the estimated 303 000 women already expected to die annually in pregnancy and childbirth.2

Paris Commune - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Paris Commune[7] was a radical socialist and revolutionary government that ruled Paris from 18 March to 28 May 1871. Following the defeat of Emperor Napoleon III in September 1870, the French Second Empire swiftly collapsed. In its stead rose a Third Republic at war with Prussia, who subjected Paris to a brutal four-month siege. A hotbed of working-class radicalism, during this time France's capital was primarily defended not by the regular French Army, but by the often politicized and radical troops of National Guard. In February 1871 Adolphe Thiers, the new chief executive of the French national government, signed an armistice with Prussia that disarmed the Army but not the National Guard.
