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

  1. How sobering! Approx. 23K dead; 2684 deaths per Km gained on 25 Sept. Why don't we remember this? Are our histories so English centric that we conveniently overlook this? I suspect there are one or two days very close to this if only Russian and Austrian-Hungarian records had survived.
