During World War 1, mustard gas was a new type of chemical warfare introduced to battle. In the poem Dulce Et Decorum Est, it talks about the people who are being gassed. The poem describes these men as "bent over like old beggars" and "an ecstasy of fumbling" as soldiers tried desperately to put their gas masks on. This image is a graphic representation of the poem showing a soldier gasping for his last breath of air. (J)
