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

  1. Might I suggest "some" coverage of the other allied armies:
    following figures given for june-july 1918 ... 4.image.r=

    2,744,962 French (including 9714 Poles and Russians) in both fronts in France and Italy
    1,968,000 Italians mainly in Italy of course but the 2nd Army Corps in France
    1,849,505 British and Commonwealth
    . 854,896 United States
    . 167,232 Belgians
    . . 56,104 Portuguese
    The French center did a lot to stop the German "dice roll" and allow the British army's "finest moment".
