German Art

The Germans also had war artists. The following sketches were taken from a series of booklets entitled Osterschlacht bei Arras 1917 (The Easter Battle near Arras, 1917) that were published in 1929 by the Reichsarchiv. Though simple, they clearly illustrate the kind of fighting that took place on Vimy Ridge. They are so emotionally charged that it would be remiss not to show them.
