British artist Paul Nash produced some stunning images reflecting on the brutality of war. He enlisted in WWI and was sent to the Western Front trenches. There he broke a rib from an accident and was sent back to England to recover. Due to his broken rib he was absent from the Battle of Passchendaele (Third Battle of Ypres in 1917), where basically his entire company was killed. After his recovery he returned to Ypres, which was then a desolate wasteland.
