    World War I One of the most powerful images of the total futility of war

    They were promised it would all be over by Christmas. Ultimately more than 70 million military personnel, including 60 million Europeans, were mobilised in one of the largest wars in history. More than 9 million combatants were killed, largely because of enormous increases in lethality of weapons, without corresponding improvements in protection or mobility for the soldiers. It was the sixth-deadliest conflict in world history. The global war began 28 Jul 1914 and lasted until 11 Nov 1918.

    World War I soldier surrounded by destruction

    With this picture it shows the trenches and what they was like to be in one, but by the soldier being there it shows the horrors about the trenches and shows how hard it was in the War to be in one. I Like this picture because it shows what World War One was like and the difficulty fighting in World War One.
