Mustard Gas Victims - WWIDownload nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Mustard Gas Victims - WWI

Description: Injured and blind British soldiers queue through the town of Bethune, April 27, 1918, after receiving injuries from a mustard gas attack during World War I. The use of mustard gas was initiated by German forces in July 1917, delivered through artillery shells at the Third Battle of Ypres (Battle of Passchendaele; July 31, 1917-November 6, 1917) and the victims shown here had been attacked by German artillery shells containing mustard gas during the final German offensive, Operation Michael, of 1918. The gas could prove fatal, but generally blinded or caused difficulty in breathing for those inhaling it or exposing their flesh to it. Various gasses were used on both sides of the conflict, but proved ineffective and unpredictable as they were subject to the changing direction of winds, only four percent of combat deaths attributed to gas.
