- Famous photograph of French soldiers in the midst of battle during the Battle of Verdun. . The Battle of Verdun is the longest and one of the most bloody and infamous battles of the First World War. By 1916 the Germans realized this war wouldn't be won with a decisive breakthrough. They planned an assault on the symbolic and sentimentally important French fort-protected town of Verdun, with the intention of bleeding France to death. . On February 21, 1916 the Germans launched the biggest artillery bombardment of the war so far on Verdun: 1 million shells in 10 hours. As Verdun was lightly defended, the Germans quickly advanced and had soon captured the biggest fort of Verdun: Fort Douamont. The entire French Second Army was sent to Verdun through a single road known as the Voie Sacrée, the Sacred Road. . Due to the massive use of artillery, combined with the thousands of troops on the relatively small battlefield of Verdun, both the French and Germans were suffering incredible casualties. The French called Verdun "the meat grinder" and the French civilization turned even more depressed and quiet than usual. The battle continued through the Spring and Summer of 1916, still being as bloody as it began. . The German offensive at Verdun was made a second-priority due to the Russian Brusilov Offensive in June and the Anglo-French Somme offensive in July, draining all the German resources. . The French began going on the offensive at Verdun in October. They had pushed the Germans back 7.5 km by December 18, ending the battle. . The 303 day long Battle of Verdun had inflicted 380,000 casualties on the French and 350,000 on the Germans, a total of 730,000 casualties, though some estimate up to 1,000,000 total casualties. Around 300,000 of these were killed, 160,000 French and 140,000 German. . The Battle of Verdun is a symbol of the useless slaughtering of the First World War and has a deep spot in national French pride and self-recognition. . The Verdun area today is now filled with shell-holes everywhere, constantly reminding one of the carnage that took place here a century ago. . #ww1 #worldwarone #thegreatwar #wwi #firstworldwar #Verdun #soldier #poilu #1916

- @Regranned from @koskommando - Berthier mle.16, this one dated 1917 from st. Etienne armory. Despite being manufactured later in the war it still saw a lot of use. There's also a loaded stripper clip on top of two magazines from the war. To be honest my favorite part of them is the add offering Burberry trench coats to French and British officers. #guns #history #France #worldwari #worldwar #greatwar #burberry #frenchmilitary #firearms #ww1 #wwi #rifle #berthier #mle16 #etienne

- Anthem For Doomed Youth: Owen’s work is synonymous with WWI poetry, the seminal expression of the British war experience. Brutal, equally intelligent and thought provoking as they are emotionally evocative, ranging from caustically humorous to chillingly sad. As much as these poems are so solidly the product of and representative of a very specific time and place, reading them always makes me think about what Owen would have accomplished later in life if he had survived the war. His work is no more about the war experience than it is about a new voice struggling and experimenting with expression, tragically cut short. A nice mini collection from @penguinclassics #littleblackclassics #wilfredowen #wwi #booklover #books #booksofinstagram #bookstagram #reading #igbooks #igreads

- Tiger Is moving through the fields of Kursk during the battle, July 1943. Kursk is probably one of the greatest point-turn battles of modern history, with many aspects sometimes forgotten. For example, the Battle of Kursk implied the introduction of the new Tiger, or the Panther; as well as new aircraft, as Kursk was also an air battle. Before the fatal engagement, German general Heinz Guderian opposed the operation, asking Hitler: “Is it really necessary to attack Kursk, and indeed in the east this year at all? Do you think anyone even knows where Kursk is? The entire world doesn't care if we capture Kursk or not. What is the reason that is forcing us to attack this year on Kursk, or even more, on the Eastern Front?”. #historiansunion #colored #colorized #colourised #colorization #colourisation #color #colour #history #ww1 #wwi #worldwarone #greatwar #thegreatwar#ww2 #wwii #worldwartwo #military #war #wehrmacht #kursk #guderian #battleofkursk #panzer #tank #tanks
