WW1 - The Steampunk War


Pictured is a British heavy daimler tractor on the Amiens-Albert road in 1916. An odd piece of military machinery but it served a purpose.

I've posted before how the Great War had a foot in both worlds. The creations used, the equipment and other items are all more steampunk than anything the fools that engage in steampunk today can think up. "Shuck I know, let's add more gears to something!" Sometimes simple tractors and horses or oddball gasmasks capture that idea of between time better than a 21st century imagination can dream up with its contemporary limitations.
