World War I: Ground warfare
When we think of warfare in the First World War, many of us will automatically imagine the trenches, filled with mud, rain, blood and rats. We look at the grim reality of fighting on the ground, from gas attacks to the capture of prisoners, all through images sourced from the akg archive, many exclusive to us.
