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

Billy Mitchell – Aviation Pioneer

We have finally begun implementing our new design and overall upgrading for our award-winning Doughboy Center.  All we have completed are our navigational pages and 1 of our 390 articles on the American Expeditionary Forces.  However, it is on one of the most fascinating figures in American Military History, General Billy Mitchell.

Since it was first placed online in 2003, much new material has been produced on Mitchell.  Rather than a single essay on him, this modernized page is more of a portal to the best articles about him on the web.

As our upgrading program proceeds, we will post other articles that have been improved since they first appeared.

See the full Billy Mitchell article at the Doughboy Center here:
