One of my favorite personalities of WWI, Field Marshal August von Mackensen.

Thanks, Kev! I have several more of him, but they're not in color! Perhaps this is silly, but he has always looked to me like exactly what I think an Imperial German field marshal should look like! :love:

My latest coloured card which I think is fantastic even though the Brit doesn?t have much colour to his uniform.

The reverse is written in Flemish/Dutch by Joseph Naveau Van den Corput to his brother(?) Ed.

Does anyone happen to know the Dutch word for silly? ??. aan den bloedigen oorlag, looks a lot like a silly war to me so long as silly in German (bl?d) and Dutch are similar.

Thanks Tom. That makes sense and it's just as similar to the German word too.

I was lucky enough to find a series of postcards sent by a man of the 37th Füsiliers (A reall "Verdun unit")...

It shows some rather over the top artists impressions....

Pre battle bombardment of the Cote Lorraine... The Verdun forts are up in those hills...
