    This photo taken circa 1917-1918 shows a World War I battlefield near Verdun, France, with holes made by bombs filled with water. When ambulance driver Stull Holt arrived at Verdun in the fall of 1917, he discovered a scene of utter desolation. "We were in historic ground and it looked it," the New York City native wrote home to family. With the death of U.S. veteran Frank Buckles at age 110, no American is left to describe the destruction first-hand. (AP Photo)/Obit_World_War_I_NY120/PHOTO...

The Great War has almost passed from living memory, as obituaries have been written for the last veterans in Britain, France, Germany and, now, the United States the with death of Frank Buckles at age 110. All of them gone. None of them surviving to tell us about a brutish, bloody conflict that set new standards for horror. (AP Photo)/Obit_World_War_I_NY115/1918 PHOTO/1102282248
