An Alpine barber in the trenches of Cerna, a photograph of life in the Albanian trenches

Description

This photograph shows daily life in a trench: a soldier is having his hair cut. At the beginning of the war, it was thought the conflict would last just a few weeks or months. But quickly it became a war of attrition, and spanned more than four years. Trenches, like this one on the Albanian Front, became home for the soldiers.
