image: a view of a Western Front battlefield in the aftermath of battle, with rain falling from the sky. Four corpses lie amongst shattered trenches, with broken duckboards, barbed wire and corrugated iron littering the scene. There are also water filled shell holes and the remains of a few bare trees on the horizon.
