WW1 - Dead Macedonian In The Snow

One Dead Soldier

Beautiful photo of one dead soldier. This looks like a work of art yet just captures one of the many millions that perished on the fields in the Great War.

The 1993 movie "Stalingrad" ended on a similar visual, two Wehrmacht soldiers trudging through the snow and then sitting down to rest, never to get up again as drifts of snow pile on them.

There used to be very moving video of Rammstein's "Ohne Dich" on youtube with scenes from the film. All had been taken down or had their audio disabled.

Do you ever write on the East Africa theater of the war? Fascinating campaigns and personalities.

Actually I will soon. An interesting thing was how the Brits used Indians in Europe and when it went bad sent them to East Africa and the Middle East. The Allies used 3rd worlders for cannon fodder to save their ass on the western front.
