This is a very interesting series. Thank you for taking the time and effort to document these young men’s stories. The Great War was probably the greatest waste of potential in the history of mankind. The truly tragic thing is in many cases entire towns, villages (and near the end cities) were emptied of young men. Many mothers lost ALL of their sons.
