Re: In General, What is Everyone Doing?

Well done Nick and Laurent and I congratulate you both on your excellent taste in reading material! How right you are about the bloodiness of the final weeks. This is what a British company commander wrote about those days....

'Reading the English newspapers at that time, one would have thought that fighting had virtually ceased and that all we were doing was to motor along and take thousands of prisoners. This annoyed us to no small degree and…two of our bitterest engagements were yet to be fought. Although things were going very well, yet valuable lives were still being lost daily, and we wished that some of these war correspondents who were sending back these totally inaccurate reports could be up with us to see what was really going on.'

Tough times.

all the best

John
