  2. Amazing.... makes one stop and think, to ponder the cost in human lives. And to see the modern day photos superimposed over the hell of those days....
    Having lived in France, and my father taking the family out to see the history, to walk in the very steps of those who've gone before us. I've walked the grounds and burial sites of battles fought long before modern weapons reeked such horror on the bodies and battlefields of WW I, WWII.....
    My father ensured that everything was a teachable moment! Being a military man he wanted us to understand war and it's cost....
