This is WW1- I'm pretty sure.

Notice the early 1900's mustaches.

WW1 certainly... The uniforms also point towards the period.

And the fact they have bikes, not motorized vehicles of some kind.

The German army during World War II still relied heavily on bikes and horses. It's a misconception that the Wehrmacht was a fully motorised highly advanced fighting force, while in reality this only applied to some elite units.

That said, the image does seem to portray WW1 soldiers, but the image is too small and too blurry to tell for sure if we're even looking at Germans.
