Friday 1 July 2016 marks the centenary of the beginning of the Battle of the Somme, the biggest conflict seen on the Western Front during World War I. Here are some of the most arresting photos from the war. Contains graphic images.
A few of you have been asking for this rare 1925/26 photo to be re-posted without the sepia tone. Photo taken by Lotte Bechstein. Hitler carries a map and his whip, along with a very funky cap. No photos of him wearing this have ever surfaced. Hitler’s at the top of his game here. :)
