Britain in the First World War

Today's picture shows British troops in World War I. The picture is from around 1915. World War I was an interesting war in that there was no clear reason for it, there were devastating losses for all involved, and there was no clear winner. Bottom line, nothing really was accomplished.


  1. A fitting photo for the anniversary of the Battle of the Somme. Some 20,000 British troops alone killed in a single day. I can't help but think that God himself must have cried that day.
