The Great War

The Great War, The War to End All Wars, and then finally World War One was arguably one of the most influential wars fought in the last century. With such a tremendous loss of life as well as a huge impact on modern warfare it's a wonder we don't study it more. Let's not sit and let this war be forgotten and skipped over. There is so much this time period has to offer and I want everyone to get excited about learning something about this war. If you're curious at all about anything please ask.

Not sure but possibly be inside a German trench during the first world war.

It’s very likely that it’s inside because they are wearing the masks as if there is an impending attack or something! What an interesting picture!

Coming out of the Battle of Amiens, 8th Aug., 1918 with an injured man.  Stretcher bearers still wearing their gas apparatus during the battle.  I’ve looked and could not find if either side used gas, so it could have been a local distribution…
