Albert I - King of Belgium - Liege - Legion d'Honneur

Albert I - King of Belgium, a panorama of Liege and the French Legion d'Honneur . The German invasion of August 5th, 1914 soon reached Liege, which was defended by 30, 000 troops under General Gerard Leman. The forts initially held off an attacking force of about 100, 000 men but were pulverised into submission by a five-day bombardment by the Germans' Big Bertha howitzers. Liege received the Legion d'Honneur for its brave resistance in 1914. Date: circa 1914

Zeppelin bomb explosion diagram

A 'special Sphere diagram' combining a photograph of bomb damage on a building in Antwerp with an added illustration of the bomb, dropped from a German Zeppelin, exploding on impact with the ground. The fragments fly upwards and greater damage is done to the upper level of the building than the ground floor fa硤e. Citizens of Liege were advised to throw themselves to the ground when they heard bombs approaching, thus supposedly reducing the risk of injury from the bomb shrapnel. Date: September 1914
