The nearly eight-month battle between the Iraqi Security Forces and the Islamic State for Mosul has left much of the city a pile of rubble.

A large percentage of the damage is localized to the western half, where the fiercest fighting took place. U.S. military commanders frequently described the battle for the western half as some of the most fierce urban fighting since World War II.

Photos from the aftermath of the battle show a city that will need billions of dollars of international assistance to rebuild.
