WWI, unseen images from the front

A Viscount in the Armoured Cavalry Branch of the French Army left behind a collection of hundreds of glass plates taken during World War One that have never before been published. The images, by an unknown photographer, show daily life of soldiers in the trenches, destruction of towns and military leaders. The year 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War. (Reuters)
