29 Images of WWI “NO Man’s Land” Referred to the territory between the opponents trenches.

Barbed wire and pits from artillery fire made it nearly impossible for attacking units to survive.

30 Images of WWI British poet Wilfred Owen, later killed in action during the war, wrote: British poet Wilfred Owen, later killed in action during the war, wrote: "No Man's Land is pocket marked like the body of foulest disease and its odor is the breath of cancer...No Man's Land under snow is like the face of the moon, chaotic, crater-ridden, uninhabitable, awful, the abode of madness." "No Man's Land is pocket marked like the body of foulest disease and its odor is the breath of cancer...No Man's Land under snow is like the face of the moon, chaotic, crater-ridden, uninhabitable, awful, the abode of madness."

41 Images of WWI American Writer F. Scott Fitzgerald, author of The Great Gatsby, took a friend to battlefield in the north of France after the war. He said: American Writer F. Scott Fitzgerald, author of The Great Gatsby, took a friend to battlefield in the north of France after the war. He said: “See that little stream - we could walk to it in two minutes. It took the British a month to walk to it - a whole empire walking very slowly, dying in front and pushing forward behind. And another empire walked very slowly backward a few inches a day, leaving behind the dead like a million bloody rags. No European will ever do that again in this generation.” “See that little stream - we could walk to it in two minutes. It took the British a month to walk to it - a whole empire walking very slowly, dying in front and pushing forward behind. And another empire walked very slowly backward a few inches a day, leaving behind the dead like a million bloody rags. No European will ever do that again in this generation.”

42 Corporal D.L. Rowlands, letter to his future wife (5th February, 1918) “Perhaps you would like to know something of the spirit of the men out here now. Well, the truth is (I'd be shot if anyone of importance collared this missive) every man Jack is fed up almost past bearing, and not a single one has an ounce of what we call patriotism left in him. No one cares a rap whether Germany has Alsace, Belgium or France too for that matter. All that every man desires now is to get done with it and go home. Now that's the honest truth, and any man who has been out here within the last few months will tell you the same. In fact, and this is no exaggeration, the greatest hope of a great majority of the men is that rioting and revolt at home will force the government to pack in on any terms.” “Perhaps you would like to know something of the spirit of the men out here now.
