Description

A German Landsturm sentry walks his rounds along the prison fence at night at Muensingen in this wood block print. The prison guard in most camps consisted of older or moderately wounded men who could not be deployed in front line units. By the end of the war, the Germans employed women and Russians (the Bolsheviks surrendered in February 1918) as sentries in many prison camps to maintain security.
