This year marks the 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War.

Rare black and white images have captured life on the trenches during World War One.

A Viscount in the Armoured Cavalry Branch of the French Army left behind a collection of hundreds of glass plates taken during WWI that have never before been published.

The images, by an unknown photographer, shines a light on the daily lives of soldiers in the trenches.

The  World War One (WW1) started on July 28, 1914 and ended on November 11, 1918.

The WW1 involved all the world’s great powers.

A lot of buildings were damaged and destroyed during the war and lots of innocent people were injured and killed.

It is sad because we lost lots of beautiful building with great historical values. 

I do not like wars and I think that war is bad and so are revolutions because I do not like violence.

Revolution is something like a war but it is from within the country like when certain group of people wants power use violence to overthrow the government.

Anyway sometimes those people would ask for help from foreign countries, to help them to overthrow their own government.

War involves other country, as when a country wants to control another country.

The photos of WW1 below show the damage and devastation that was caused to towns and villages along the Western Front in France and Belgium during the war.

I hope we can avoid wars and revolutions and that the world will be a peaceful place for all of us.

War is a disaster.
