'unextinguished laughter shakes the skies'
A member of the American Expeditionary Forces
This 'doughboy' (a nickname used for American infantry during the war) makes me laugh just looking at him : ) Might have something to do with that gas mask in his hands? Or maybe it's in response to a joke.
It’s difficult to reconcile his jovial laughter with the carnage he had to face. 26,277 men were killed in the six week offensive. 95,786 men were wounded.
