                    This is a cover of Petit Journal from 5th December 1912. It's not from WW1 but still represents the same epoch and it's quite good for me.

                              Disease and wildlife killed more than enemy action on the African front, whilst on the Western Front the war was the first major conflict where more men died of enemy action than disease.
