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

Some Favorite Images from Over the Top: Magazine of the World War One Centennial

I have been publishing my Over the Top monthly magazine since 2007, and during my recent computer upgrade I've had the chance to take a  fresh look at some of the images  we have presented, or considered presenting, to our readers  over the years. Here are some that struck me as particularly striking or interesting.

Note the Suspicious Enver Pasha on  the Far Left

  1. Why does the Zeppelin appear to have a searchlight coming from it, rather than up to it? A bit of a give-away as to it's position!
