On my Western Front tour in 2008 the most tireless shutterbug in the group was my fellow Air Force veteran Steve Miller. It was only afterward, though, that I came to understand Steve's passion for recording the important sites of the war, both famous and forgotten. Not only did Steve present me with an excellent set of images from our trip together, but since then he has also provided me an endless stream of images from around the world — places I've never had a chance to visit myself —that I've been able to use in all my publications, especially here on Roads to the Great War. Here is a selection of images for you from my "Steve Miller" folder. You'll be seeing more of Steve's work in the future, of course.
