of WWI as the opposing armies engaged in a terrible war of attrition. 
Highly Recommended 

The Great War has become infamous for the enormous casualties that 
were exchanged for almost no sustainable progress. As battles were 
repeated many times, the armies moved backward and forward painfully 
few yards. Mining and counter mining produced some spectacular 
explosions but still no real progress. It was only with the 
introduction of the tanks and fresh troops in some numbers from the 
US that the Allies began to force the Germans back and into defeat.

By 1914, the film camera was already in widespread use and was 
carried by soldiers and airmen. However, WWI was perhaps the last 
war where the war artist was supreme in providing illustration for 
war reports. The result was some vivid illustration that carried 
emotion and terror in a way that the camera had yet to match.

This is both a war record and a collection of art.
