It was supposed to be the war to end all war. For over four years World War I raged on, leaving in its wake a toll of death and destruction such as the world had never seen. These are the images of that time, an eternal testament to all those whose lives were lost or forever altered by The Great War.

La Bataille de Verdun / Verdun et la Grande Guerre / Terre d'Histoire - Mairie de Verdun Côté français, la surprise a été « presque » totale et le choc effroyable. Mais la débandade attendue par l’ennemi n’a pas eu lieu. Les survivants des deux divisions françaises ne battent pas en retraite, ni ne se rendent. A dix contre cent, fusils Lebel contre Mauser et lance-flammes, la défense française s’organise. L’infanterie allemande procède par vagues d’assaut, espacées d’une centaine de mètres. Toutefois, les difficultés du terrain les obligent souvent à progresser par colonnes, désorganisant leur montée en ligne.

Documents d'époque, Cartes-photos, Cartes photos écrites, Cartes-postales, Cartes postales écrites, Dans les tranchées, Photos aériennes, Photos autres Il y a quelques temps j'ai récupéré quelques cartes illustrées écrites par un soldat et des membres de sa famille, souvenirs émouvants quand on sait qu'il a été, peu de temps après, tué au combat. (1) Originaire de l'Yonne, il était né et habitait Ancy-le-Franc. Comme tous ses compagnons du front, il profitait d'un moment de repos ou de calme pour écrire quelques mots à sa famille. Principalement pour les rassurer, taisant les dangers auquels il avait à faire face, mais parfois aussi pour leur demander de petits services. C'est le cas de la première de ses cartes. Elle date du 2 février 1915, elle est adressée à son épouse.

Première Guerre mondiale : elle devait être la “der des ders“ Plus de 60 millions de soldats ont pris part au Premier conflit mondial du XXème siècle, l'un des plus meurtriers : plus de 10 millions de personnes y ont trouvé la mort et environ 20 millions n'en sont pas revenues valides. Cette guerre opposa deux grandes alliances, la Triple-Entente et celle des Empires centraux. La Triple-Entente était composée de la France, de la Grande-Bretagne, de la Russie et des empires qu'elles contrôlaient en tant que grandes puissances coloniales. La coalition des Empires centraux était initialement constituée de l'Allemagne, de l'Autriche-Hongrie et des empires sous leur emprise. Christmas 1914: The day even WWI showed humanity PLOEGSTEERT, Belgium — With British and German forces separated only by a no-man's land littered with fallen comrades, sounds of a German Christmas carol suddenly drifted across the frigid air: "Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht" ("Silent Night, Holy Night"). Then, during that first Christmas Day in World War I, something magical happened. Soldiers who had been killing each other by the tens of thousands for months climbed out of their soggy, muddy trenches to seek a shred of humanity amid the horrors of war. Hands reached out across the narrow divide, presents were exchanged, and in Flanders Fields a century ago, a spontaneous Christmas truce briefly lifted the human spirit. "Not a shot was fired," Lt. Kurt Zehmisch of the 134th Saxony regiment wrote with amazement in his diary that Christmas.

If you are looking… World War one as interpreted in magazine writings In 2014-2018 the world marks the 100th anniversary of the most profound war in human history. In more than four years of brutal combat civilization was radically changed. The course of modern world history can be traced to the upheavals created by this Great War. From colonial arrangements, to political, social, and economic transformations, the War created a new global order. Gone were many of the old regimes as Empires and Tsars, Potentates and Princes perished. Gone was the aura of invincibility Europeans felt as they grapsed for international control.
