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

Three Months of the Trip-Wire

(Note for readers:  Yesterday your editor bungled the presentation of Jim Gallen's review of Crucible:  The Long End of the Great War.  We corrected matters and invite you to scroll down and read the article as we intended to present it. MH)
