Excellent photos. I wonder how the middle east front would look if Kaiser sent the Asienkorps in late 1915 and place someone brilliant in command, like Hoffmann - Suez and Kuwait conquered maybe?

The trouble was Uncle Fritz, that they didn't have a clear path to send troops from Germany to Turkey until Serbia was defeated and Bulgaria joined the Central Powers... until then they could only smuggle the odd group through in plain clothes.

IDF finds cache of German weapons in the Dead Sea

How an old weapons cache survived in the Dead Sea.

Thousands of weapons were exposed under the northern part of the Dead Sea. The Army has estimated that the weapons were lodged after World War I by a battalion of Germans before returning to Europe. Some of the items were over 110 years in age....
