The thing we can never really fathom about WW1 is the scale - the scale of people involved, the scale of death, even the scale of technology employed. This photo helps to bridge that gap - it shows a pile of empty shell cases from a single British bombardment of Hill 60 in 1916.


@jujube absurd, but logical in its own twisted way

and yet the scale of later wars was also vast. So many things about WWII come to mind, but also the US bombing in and around Vietnam
