In this photo taken on Saturday, Dec. 20, 2014, the sun begins to rise in back of barbed wire next to a re-constructed WWI trench in Ploegsteert, Belgium. Chlorine gas - sent crawling in favorable winds over Flanders Fields from German positions - sowed terror and agony for the first time on April 22, 1915. The era of chemical weaponry had dawned. The weapon of mass slaughter came to symbolize the ruthlessness and, many say, futility of the 1914-1918 Great War. (AP Photo/Virginia Mayo)
