May they all rest in peace...
In the area we visited, the "Westhoek" of Flanders, 600.000 soldiers were killed, injured or went missing in a period of 100+ days. Mostly by artillery fire and poison gas. And all for a gain of 8km/5miles territory against the Germans.
Just a minor detail....the cease fire was agreed by all parties at very early morning on November 11 but the bobo's decided to use the symbolic timing of 11:00 AM on November 11 as the moment for the cease fire to come into effect. This delay caused 2700 unnecessary death alone.
May they  all rest in peace indeed...
