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

12th Anniversary Issue of the St. Mihiel Trip-Wire

Our oldest and best-known recurring publication at is our free monthly newsletter the St. Mihiel Trip-Wire. Every month we provide a portal to a vast amount of information on the Great War. Our 12th anniversary issue is typical of what we make available each month for free. This month's issue provides 15 major articles and minor features, 43 links to the best WWI sites on the Internet, and 19 photos, plus all our evocative graphics designed by Shannon Neil. Below is a single article from our anniversary issue. To view the full issue just click on:


  1. Congratulations, Mike and the rest of the team for 12 amazing years of information, education, and resources for the existing WW1 community of interest, and for helping to expand it to new generations!

  2. I agree with Diane; I enjoy these websites a lot!

  3. Yes, thanks so much in helping us remember... It just emphasizes what a great tragedy is war and makes one wonder how after all of this we repeated it in the 1940's. I guess the world then looked for strong charismatic leaders and good men did not stand up to them.
