Aerial Photography


Two German photographs showing aerial views of the battlefield. The top shows two very faint trench lines. Soldiers can be seen in the trenches as well as in the area between them. The bottom pictures the remains of a building in a heavily shelled area. It is not clear if there are soldiers among the ruins.

300 Meters From the Frenchmen


A frontline German trench. If the note on the back is to be believed it is only 300 meters to the opposing French trench.

Trench Ladders

Four German soldiers carrying short makeshift ladders through a shallow trench. It must have been a very secure area to allow the photographer to set up on a high point to take this picture.
