WWI bodies frozen in timeIt would be frightening to hear how many soldiers - Allied and Axis - disappeared, never to be heard from again, in the years 1914 to 1918, on the French/Belgian front. Twenty-one turn up here. Thousands more will be dug up as time goes by.

Archeologists in France have discovered the skeletal remains of 21 German soldiers still in position at the moment of their death and entombed in a perfectly preserved World War I underground bunker.
The foot soldiers were buried alive in mud near the Alsatian city of Mulhouse when the walls caved after the French shelled them on March 18, 1918. Some were found sitting upright on a bench. Another was lying in his bunk. [link]
