I was researching the work of Giulio Aristide Sartorio - a painter I remembered from a trip to Italy some years ago, when I came across a series of war paintings of his that are fantastic. I paired excerpts form the series with aesthetically similar paintings or painters. I'm not meaning to imply one painter looked at the other painter, but it is always interesting to me to see similarities between artists. Unfortunately, the page on which I found these works by Sartorio is written in Italian so I do not translated titles - the series is from 1917-1918.
