Aftermath of the fighting in the French town of Carency during the Second Battle of Artois, May 1915.

Photo from The War Illustrated, June 1915. Caption reads:

AFTER THE BRILLIANT FRENCH VICTORY AT CARENCY.—The capture of Carency, or the Battle of Arras, constituted a great triumph for our French Allies. For many weeks the 9th Army was secretly reinforced with young recruits, guns, and ammunition. While the Germans were fully employed against the British near Lille and at Ypres, General Maud'huy began a second bombardment of the hill of Notre Dame de Lorette, and followed it up with a sweeping infantry attack along a front of ten miles. This exclusive photograph shows the entrace to what was once Carency, with some French Chasseurs lying where they were shot down before the German barricades.
