      Creepy fucking picture of a WW1 soldier with Shell Shock.





      A Shell Shocked soldier in a trench during the Battle of Courcelette in mid-September 1916. Shell shock was the reaction of soldiers in World War I to the trauma of battle. It has been described as a reaction to the intensity of the bombardment and fighting that produced a helplessness appearing variously as panic, or flight, an inability to reason, sleep, walk or talk.

      It's a sort of involuntary response, you gotta think. Before WW1 most wars/conflicts were either small battles spread out with little artillery. Civil war was "that" bad, it was mostly just rows of muskets firing. WW1 brought to use of absolutely MASSIVE artillery bombardments, stuff no one fighting had ever had to deal with. They were only able to take so much before they lost control of there reactions and there body took over producing what we call "shell shock"

      Nothing had ever prepared soldiers for the intensity of artillery in the war, just look at these photos. They give you a little insight into the amount of artillery that was used.










      Verdun
      Before artillery barrage.


      after

      Not just artillery either. Mustard and chlorine gas, machineguns, aircraft, these things had barely been invented, certainly not seen by the average person during that time. The American guys in WWI were used to hearing stories about the Civil War that their fathers, brothers, and friends fought in. Nothing could have prepared them for the shit they saw in WWI.
