It was the war to end all wars.
And yet, in four short, yet incredibly long, years, over 16,560,000 would die and another 21,200,000 were wounded.
These pictures tell a very small part of that story.
Some of the most poignant photos are those of children growing up during war. Boys and girls whose lives were forever marked by the devastation of life and lives, they still found time to play amidst it all.
