WORLD WAR I: African American infantryman posing in front of the American flag. Isn't it sad that throughout the history of photography striking black American images say, "Unidentified African American"? Wasn't the country built by them too?

This picture is part of a previously unpublished set of World War One images   from a private collection. The photographs offer an unusual view of varied   and contrasting aspects of the conflict, from high tech artillery to mobile   pigeon lofts, and from officers partying in their headquarters to the grim   reality of life and death in the trenches.
