World War I: Unseen Images from the front

Photo: A French officer stands near a cemetery with recent graves of soldiers killed on the front lines of World War I at the Saint-Jean-sur-Tourbe on the Champagne front, eastern France on Dec. 19, 1916.

A viscount in the Armoured Cavalry Branch of the French Army left behind a collection of hundreds of glass plates taken during World War I that have never before been published. The images, by an unknown photographer, show the daily life of soldiers in the trenches, destruction of towns and military leaders. This summer marks the 100th anniversary of the start of the WWI. —Reuters

Black Mask

Taiwanese soldiers with an interesting, if not intimidating piece of equipment. A ballistic face mask designed to protect the user from headshots. Meant for close range encounters, the masks are rated up to .44 Magnum but keep in mind that the energy from the bullet will still be felt impacting the mask.

Ballistic face masks - awesome for dystopias!
