Depicts a desolate landscape in Solre-le-Chateau with a large bomb crater traversing diagonally across the centre of the image. Solre-le-Chateau is a village in the north of France. Pictured is a German ammunition train, having been blown off its rails. In the foreground are unexploded shells. In the distance is the purple haze of an indistinguishable landscape against a clear blue sky.
