Re: What it was really like

For those wanting to look them up, these are the famous engravings by Jacques Callot titled Les Grandes Misères de la guerre, or "The Great Miseries of War."

It is fitting that right after Plate 17, the second-to-last plate which shows desperate peasants murdering some soldiers who were separated from their unit, Callot added the final plate in which the generals are awarded for their valor.

Here is a much more in-depth explanation from a scholarly journal.

The details on these prints are a little hard to make out. If you want a better look, try this thread here:

(Same thread, but the Matrix forum allows for larger graphics).
