Incredible Pictures Of World War I Battlefields From Above

Updated 24 Oct 2018 3.7k views15 items

The battlefields of World War I brought the concept of trench warfare to a new extreme. The war, which drastically changed the world, saw the weaving, snake-like pathways crop up quickly and over long distances.

Those trenches, and the mine-filled and crossfire-laden No Man's Land between them, comprised some of the most gruesome living conditions from any war. That's what makes these aerial photos of World War I battlefields - many from the book The Great War Seen From the Air - both horrifying and remarkable.
