L'entente Cordiale

L'entente cordiale - Roger Fenton. English and French soldiers having a drink together in the lines before Sebastopol during the Crimean War. 1855. On the subject of this photograph, the critic Ernest Lacan wrote: “We have often heard about the entente cordiale […] it is the "Open Sesame!" of the future; but no-one can better put the idea of it into practice than soldiers from different nations fighting side by side in the Middle East for the same cause”.
