French artillery position near St. Mihiel 1918

An often seen picture. A long dead (?) French artilleryman lies beside his field gun somewhere near Saint Mihiel 1918. The Battle of Saint-Mihiel was a World War I battle fought between September 12 - 15, 1918, involving the American Expeditionary Force and 48,000 French troops under the command of U.S. General John J. Pershing. The United States Army Air Service (which later became the United States Air Force) played a significant role in this action.

The Battle of Flers-Courcelette, part of the Somme offensive beginning Sept. 15, 1916, saw the very first use of tank in warfare. The British Army’s Mark I, or “D1” (pictured below), was involved in the battle. Although it undoubtedly contributed to the Allied forces’ success, mechanical failures limited its effectiveness.

World War I in Photos: A Century Later

One hundred years after the start of the Great War, none of the participants remain alive, and we are left with aging relics, fading photographs, scarred landscapes being reclaimed by nature, and memorials and graveyards across the globe.

British Mark IV 'Female' (Blarney Castle), Fontaine Notre Dame, November 1917 One of the most photographed tanks of the war "Blarney Castle", a Mk IV 'female' sits where it was knocked-out by truck-borne German artillery in Fontaine Notre Dame, about 4 kilometres West of Cambrai. The British tanks suffered 70% casualties during the ill-fated attack on Fontaine-Notre-Dame on 23 November largely thanks to the accuracy of the German gunners using their anti-aircraft guns Ww1 Tanks, Ww1 History, British Army, British Tanks, Vintage Dance, 23 November, War Machine, World War I, Wwi
