Art student Otto Schubert (1892-1970) was 22 years old when he was drafted into the war. As the conflict unfolded, he painted a series of postcards that he sent to his sweetheart, Irma.
All pictures extracted from Postcards from the Trenches: A German Soldier’s Testimony of the Great War by Irene Guenther, published by Bloomsbury Visual Arts.
