French Soldier Uniform – circa 1914

 

 

Another one of those colored postcards (basically a black and white picture that was colored afterwards) depicting a French soldier circa 1914. It shows their infamous blue and red uniform that was sure great for 19th century style of warring, not so much when war entered the industrial age when machine guns and armored vehicles quickly replaced horses and bayonets as World War One broke out.
