The Tools of Death

 

Pictures above is a large allied ammunition dump, with thousands of artillery shells piled up and waiting to be fired against the enemy during the Battle of Verdun. Verdun was one of the bloodiest battles in human history. Total casualties amounted to almost a million men on both sides. Undoubtedly many of the shells in this photo found their mark and were responsible for some of the dead and wounded.
