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

Remembering a Veteran: Capitaine François Heym, 166th Regiment of Infantry

If you are not familiar with the story of the importance of Fort de Troyon's valiant defense — the action simply saved the Battle of the Marne for France. We told the full story in the February 2008 issue of Over the Top, which — as with any of our 84 back issues — is available for $4.50 as a download.  Email us for further information and a list of our other issues.
