• 1915. The curiosities of the front-line life or why monkeys die in a strange climate

  • During the First world war left a lot of comic magazines and special humorous issues regular publications. Typically, the jokes were not particularly designed for literate soldiers spending in the trenches and on the front almost all the time and looking for some entertainment. In the compilation of the Petrograd magazine "War" for 1914 and 1915 we have found some special comic releases. One of them (No. 19) was called "Funny scary" out of him and taken the stories below.

    - Morgen, Morgen, " answered our soldiers and waved the Germans caps...

    For the Germans, these performances have ended very badly. Our battalion was replaced, and the trenches were occupied by new soldiers, which had been established "traditions". And as soon as I saw the morning the Germans, shouting to them "Morgen", opened fire and many of them were killed. Of course, the Germans did not appear and was sitting in the trenches...

    Between our trenches and German potato field was located. Often Russian soldiers and the Germans threw down their weapons and agreed, dug potatoes, exchanged tobacco and cigars and talking very comfortably. And then, after a few minutes, they were enemies, and sent each other lead gifts.

    Talk about a funny case of the surrender of the Austrian drivers. Austrian General broke the driver, and then, drunk, went somewhere in the car and... fell asleep in it. Then the offended driver brought his General to Russian and put into captivity along with the car!
