Kaninchenragout (rabbit stew)
Unused. Photogr. Christ. M. Bauer, Würzburg.
A Bavarian medic goes about it the hard way as he prepares to issue the coup de grâce to a family pet - or is it? I cannot tell if the woman depicted in the photo is begging for mercy for the creature or rubbing her hands together in anticipation of some rabbit stew.
At the outbreak of WW1, the German Gew98 came with the long S98 bayonet (seen above) in order to counter the equally as long French types. Once both armies were bogged down in trench warfare, the Germans reduced the size of their bayonets to a more practical length for trench-warfare.
