Today I'm publishing article number 2,300 on Roads to the Great War. I thought I should take this opportunity to address a troublesome issue that, I guess, is built into the blog format. Frequently over the years, I get suggestions or requests for articles on matters I've previously posted multiple articles. However, sometimes I'm surprised in the other direction—that in the endlessly interesting annals of the First World War there are apparently a number (probably a lot) of events I just have never thought or heard about. Yes, there are things I don't know, I don't know.
For today's exercise, I'd like us to attempt an experiment, hopefully corrective in both directions. Please go to our search engine (shown on graphic below) and type in your favorite WWI topic. I predict that in most cases you will get a list of pertinent articles. If you get the dreaded "No Results", please leave a comment below with your search entry. I will put on my researcher's hat, head for the library, and crank out an article for you and all our readers to fill that gap. If you are one of those truly wonderful people who have read all 2,299 previously postings, please take a day off. You've well earned it.
Happy #2,300 Day
From Your Editor/Publisher Mike Hanlon
