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

Recommended: Australia's World War I Victoria Cross Recipients

This is one of the cleverest and most efficient uses of technology for providing a dense collection of information I've seen recently. From The Australian website, the stories of all 64 of Australia's WWI VC recipients can be accessed just by clicking on the party's name. Shown here is Private Thomas Cooke, who was posthumously decorated for an action at Pozières during the Battle of the Somme, 24–25 July 1916.
