Trenches on the Italian Front

Description

This photograph was taken in May 1918 at the Italian Front. With the end of the war of movement by October 1914, all the fighting nations dug trenches to protect infantry from artillery and machine gun fire. The soldiers shown here are equipped with standard French equipment: the Lebel rifle and Adrian helmet, both issued in 1915.
