Description

The corpse of a Russian soldier caught in barbed wired. Taken in Poland and published in 1916 by Popular Science Monthly. It is one of the very few photographic representations of death to be found in popularization magazines.
Caption "The result of a premature charge. It is an accepted rule among the warring nations that the enemy's barbed wire entanglements shall be blown to pieces by artillery fire before the command is given to charge. These Russians have met death in the midst of the barricades defending the German positions in Poland"
