Italian alpine units climbing a steep slope during World War I.While World War I is particularly known for its trench warfare, one interesting part of WWI history was the Alpine wars of Northern Italy. Perhaps those who faced the worst conditions were the Italians. Throughout most of the war Germany and Austria-Hungary occupied the high ground. Thus Italian soldiers were often forced to make suicide attacks against highly fortified mountain top positions, suffering heavy losses. by christa

Sgt. Stubby fought in 17 battles in WWI. He was in the trenches in France for 18 months, survived being gassed and went on to warn his unit of incoming gas attacks and artillery shelling; he located wounded soldiers, and helped capture a German spy. After the war, he was the Georgetown Hoyas’ mascot. #Pitbull hero by dana

But the most devastating were human losses. By December of 1941, the USSR had lost 2.7 million soldiers killed and 3.3 million captured – its entire pre-war army. For every German soldier lost, the Soviets lost 20. Photo: Soviet soldiers surrendering (Belarus, July 1941) by kristi

German soldiers, date unknown.  The reality of War.  Many soldiers on both sides were little more than kids.  Thrown into uniform and given scant training, they were forced to endure combat and conditions that eventually broke even the hardest of the hard-hearted.  They also died in droves. by christa

This rare color photograph, from May 1945, only days after the war’s end, shows recently-surrendered German soldiers interned in a British Prisoner Of War Camp in occupied Germany.    Hundreds of thousands of German soldiers spent weeks and weeks in such open-air camps before they were discharged and allowed to return to their homes.

Over ninety years ago during World War I, British and German soldiers put down their weapons, walked out into the desolation of No-Man’s Land and shook hands. This was the Christmas cease fire of 1914. In a moment unique to the First World War, troops were given a moment of respite from the horrors of the war when soldiers exchanged gifts, looked at each others’ family photographs and played friendly games of football with the enemy. by carrie

His pictures of soldiers of World War I are particularly moving. Later he painted expressionistic visions. His style, witty and superficial as influenced by French art, often changed.
