You often hear or see about the dead. Their bodies litter the battlefield. White crosses adorn poppy fields. But what happens to the living, the wounded? Not those missing an arm, missing a leg. But those severely wounded. Never to return to normal society. For the rest of their lives, they are ghosts living among us.

Weburbanist explains: "Seen from the eyes of a German officer, these dramatic photos depict the St. Quentin Cathedral in northern France, which was almost completely destroyed during World War I. They’re part of a collection of over a thousand photos, stereographs and negatives saved by Lt. Walter Koessler’s family and shared by his grandson on Tumblr and in a forthcoming Kickstarter-funded book." weburbanist.com
