    These images show just a few of the many different types of uniforms and styles which were used during the course of the war on the western front. Despite pre-war experiments with camoflage and other modern ideas, typical line troops began the war wearing an almost Victorian era style of uniform. The ravages of the fighting quickly transformed everything, from clothing and boots to grenades and helmets. By the end of the war, the uniforms and weapons carried by troops were far different than those used a mere four years earlier when the war began.
