Description

Charles Fouqueray African Army and Colonial Troops Day 1917.  In an exciting and fanciful image of their fighting capabilities, French North African troops charge into battle. Black troops never adapted to trench warfare or the cold and were used mainly as laborers. At Verdun, for instance, they were responsible for keeping the roads leading to the town open. Scarce.  48×31 near mint, conservation backed.
