These vintage photos of World War I's battlefields offer a glimpse into the lives of soldiers and civilians.

World War I (1914-1918) was a global conflict between the Central Powers (led by
Germany, Austria-Hungary, and the Ottoman Empire) and the Allied Powers (led by France, Great Britain, and Russia) that resulted in the loss of approximately 8.5 million military personnel and 6.5 million civilians.

The war had a significant impact on the political landscape of Europe and resulted in the collapse of empires, the redrawing of borders, and the emergence of new nations. It ended with the signing of the Armistice of Compiegne in 1918, followed by the Treaty of Versailles in 1919.
