World War 1 – ‘The war to end wars’

27/02/2008

invisible hit counter
The War to end Wars, or so it was thought. I am re-reading Barbara Tuchman’s great book about the causes of World War One – The Guns of August. If you have not read this marvellous book, do so.

Guns Of August - cover

This led me on to listening to some music from that time and looking at various photos. I came across the item below on You Tube, which is a collection of photographs accompanying a song by a great English folk group Coope, Boyes & Simpson.

It reminded me also of my grandfather who served in the trenches in that horrendous conflict.
