Description

A French prisoner of war at Langensalza poses for a photograph with his pipe in hand. Given his demeanor, he appears to be contented in his confined surroundings. Not all war prisoners accepted captivity and many succumbed to "barbed-wire disease," a mental condition that arose from prolonged imprisonment for an indefinite period of time.
