I occasionally get requests or suggestions for articles on various WWI topics. I hope you will continue to do so. You can mention the topic in our comments section below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your idea.
However, I sometimes get requests on subjects we have covered in past postings. It is not very evident in the Google Blogger format, but we have our own search engine in the upper lefthand corner of the page. Try typing in your favorite topic, and you might find several articles among the 1562 daily entries (no kidding) we have made since we started out in 2013. MH
A Field in Flanders
By Thomas Wolfe
The low, grey clouds are drifting 'cross the sky,
While here and there the little smoke puffs break,
And now and then the shrapnel bursts on high,
And growling guns their mighty thunder make.
A war-ripped field,-with what a tale to tell!
A tale to cause the souls of kings to quake,
For here, within a smoking, bloody Hell,
Ten million risk their lives for Freedom's sake.
And to the right a ruined village burns,
And to the left a wood its secrets hold,
But in the gutted field the plowshare turns
A grinning skull which sneers its message bold.
