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

My Battle of the Somme Slide Show, Part II

On the Centennial of the Battle of the Somme, I presented a program on the struggle to the World War One Historical Association.  Over the past two days, I'm presenting a selection of the slides I used in that program, mainly to give a feel for the battle and its importance historically. We have presented dozens of articles on the Battle of the Somme on Roads to the Great War.  If you would like more detailed information on it, just enter "Somme" in the search box at the top of the page.
