BUTCHERY by Iono Allen
“The latest attack cost (figures given by officers) eighty thousands men and one billion 5 hundred millions of francs for munitions. And at this price, we gained 4 kilometers to find before us new trenches.” Soldier Michel LANSON – July 1915
1914-1918 World War I: 9 millions dead, 8 millions disabled. A short symbolic vision of this war, the first massive and technologic one, through real letters from soldiers: a french one, a german one and a english nurse.
