This is the photographic history of the German Army on campaign throughout the First World War.
The most striking images from the German perspective are gathered here and form a significant historical record of one of the most important events of modern history.
In 1914, the German war machine began its advance into Europe. By 1918 the German Army had lost over two million men, and suffered through some of the most horrific events in human memory. In a war caused by politics, it was the ordinary men who lost their lives and here we aim to highlight the human cost of the conflict from beginning to end.
