    Αδημοσίευτες φωτογραφίες από το «σφαγείο» του Σομ το 1916

    Είναι εντυπωσιακό πως μετά 100 χρόνια οι εντυπωσιακές φωτογραφίες ενός 16χρονους στρατιώτη αποκαλύπτονται και δέιχνουν τον τρομο του Α' ΠΠ από την πλευρά των ηττημένων Γερμανών. Οι φωτογραφίες πάρθηκαν από τον Walter Kleinfeldt που κατατάχθηκε το 1915 κα πολέμησε στο Σομ σε ηλικία μόλις 16 ετών
    Ο Walter Kleinfeldt όταν τελείωσε ο πόλεμος άνοιξε φωτογραφέιο. Η μάχη του Σόμ ήταν η πρώτη μεγάλη βρετανική επίθεση.
    Μόνο η πρώτη ημέρα στοίχισε στους Βρεατανούς 57,470 άνδρες, περισσότερους απ'οτι στους πολέμους των Μπόερς, της Κριμαίας και της Κορέας.
    Walter was just 16 when he fought at the Somme but his photos soon took on dark tone. Here he captures a German army medic kneeling beside a dying colleague - but he can do no more than offer comfort.
