"Hidden for 100 years, the astonishing photos by 16-year-old soldier shows how his brothers-in-arms would forever be haunted by the spectre of defeat
...taken by Walter Kleinfeldt who joined a German gun crew in 1915 and fought at the Somme aged just 16. As his haunting pictures, taken with a Contessa camera, make all too clear, life in the trenches was a harrowing experience. The images provide an insight into the epic machinery of war â€“ and capture the darkest moments of battle, with bodies strewn among the rubble.
War can do that. My dad lied about his age, and enlisted in the Navy at age 15. He was shipped home from the Pacific in pieces. He survived, or I wouldn't be here - but he doesn't look like a teenager again in any pictures.
