Donalyn,

Goya would be a wonderful choice. The Third of May is just stunning. I also
like: Delacroix's Liberty Leading the People, David's The Oath of the
Horatii, or maybe even the Death of Marat, West's Death of General Wolfe,
Jacques Callot did a series of etchings called the Miseries of War (these
are considered the first realistic, pictorial record of the human tragedy of
war. And don't forget the war memorials: Arch of Titus, Arch of Constantine,
Column of Trajan, many other Roman and Greek friezes address battle and more
recently there's Ernst Barlach's War Monument. I don't know exactly what
you have in mind, but maybe this will help. I found a lot of this in my
Gardner's Art Through the Ages books, online they're at:
