World War I in photos

One century ago today, one of the worst wars in human history started: the ill-named Great War. Ultimately the lives of more than 16 million people were lost. The Atlantic has posted a ten part series of photographs from this conflict, ranging from the well-known western front trenches, to aerial warfare and war at sea, concluding with a series of present day shots on this theme. Disturbing images, but essential to get a better view of what happened back then.
