100 years ago the Battle of Passchendaele (Third Battle of Ypres) was beginning
#2
Just got back from a European trip. We visited the Somme battlefield memorials. My great-grandfather died and is noted on the Thiepval memorial for those who died without a grave. My grandmother often spoke about him and how he died leading his men to safety. The whole area is a moving memorial to the great war. We never learn...

We also spent a couple of says in Bastogne, site of the 101st Airborne defence of the town during the battle of the bulge.

We rounded off our trip with a viewing of the movie Dunkirk. I'm all warred out now.
