Caption: German trenches. German soldiers smoking and reading in a trench during World War I. Extensive trench systems were dug by both sides during the Great War (First World War, 1914-1918) as the opposing armies fought to a standstill on the Western Front in northern France and Belgium. Typical injuries to the soldiers would be from shell fire and sniper fire. Many millions fought and died in what was one of the largest wars in history. This photograph, dating from around 1914 or 1915, is from the Bain News Service, one of the USA's earliest news picture libraries.
