A Viscount in the Armored Cavalry Branch of the French Army left behind a collection of hundreds of glass plates taken during World War One that have never before been published. The images, by an unknown photographer, show the daily life of soldiers in the trenches, destruction of towns and military leaders. 39 PHOTOS

I was born in the town called Suippes, and lived in Verdun for many years. Amazing that I remember the building in Chalons-sur-Marne as we called it before it was changed to Chalons-sur-Champagne. Bittersweet memories that are resurfacing.
