WW1 - Soldier And Death


"Soldat Und Tod" by Hans Larwin in 1917. I won't ruin this with any commentary but that I waited until 2017 to share this one. The centennial of Verdun and Somme are over and done with, and the ruin that those battles created are still with us.

"Injuries were wrought to the structure of human society which a century will not efface, and which may conceivably prove fatal to the present civilization."

Churchill certainly made his mistakes, but his take on WWI was pretty accurate.
