Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

Steve Miller Continues
The Pursuit of Lufbery

In recent editions of Roads to the Great War, we have discussed the notable service of aviator Raoul Lufbery (18 June 2013) and discovered that a monument to him exists in the village of Maron (22 June 2013). Little did we realize that our own Steve Miller has done field research on the great dual veteran of the Lafayette Escadrille and 94th Aero Squadron. He has visited both the actual crash site of Lufbery and his final resting place at the Lafayette Escadrille Memorial outside Paris on the Villeneuve-l'√Čtang estate. Here are Steve's reconnaissance photos.
