That is Doku Umarov, former Chechen president and Emir of so called Caucasus Emirate.

What we have here is a picture taken by a Hythe gun camera, which looked and felt like a Lewis Gun, and was used for air gunner training in World War One.

I don't think that "German Soldiers Fighting" is actually a combat photo. Looks more like training/display to me though I could be wrong of course.

Particularly since they're French.

The man kneeling to the left is holding a steel sided rifle very similar to a lebel [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lebel_Model_1886_rifle]Lebel Model 1886 rifle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame] not a Mauser which has wooden sides.
Theyre wearing either puttees or canvas sided boots not black leather jackboots.
They're wearing white cloth covers over what seems to be Kepi's not and sort of German forage cap.

Theyre French Foreign Legion.

It does look more like World War 1 but I could be wrong.
