Carl De Keyzer invited ten top international photographers - colleagues of his at the celebrated Magnum agency - to shoot a series on how the First World War continues to reverberate in their countries. He chose nations that were directly involved in the conflict: Germany, Britain, Russia, Austria, Italy, Belgium, the United States, Australia, the Balkan countries and France.
