World War 1 in photos

A friend just sent me the link to an amazing collection of images from 'The Atlantic: World War 1 in Photos: The Western Front Part II and Armistice'.

Here are two of the photos from the collection:

A wounded British prisoner being supported by two German soldiers, 1917.

A French town on 31 October 1918. The bridge was built by New Zealand engineers.

The images have no connection to Coburg and some are quite confrontational, but it's an amazing collection and if you go back to The Atlantic's home page and type World War 1 into the search, you will find plenty of other impressive images. I was particularly taken with those in the collection World War 1: a century later
