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

The Western Front Virtual Tour: Introduction

Roads to the Great War
Announces a New Feature for 2014

Starting next week and continuing for all of 2014, Roads to the Great War will be taking our readers on a tour of the Western Front. As regular readers know, I have been leading battlefield tours for many years mostly to the Western Front, but also to Gallipoli and the Italian Front. As of 3 January 2014, start dropping in every Friday and begin learning about each of my 52 favorite sites on the Western Front. We will have our usual high quality images and an essay on each stop.

  1. Thank you for providing this excellent resource for those of us who may never be able to travel to Europe to visit these sites, but have a family member who served.
