    John Boyden, a novel about two Indian canadian snipers in ww1 , I highy reccomend it to anyone interested in ww1 or ww2, being part Blackfoot myself, i have a sympathy for Indian causes, especially soldiers who are also Indians, as I was. the Indians in the book are Cree, there are sections I would call x-rated, i bought the book at Wal-Marts bargain book table. eventually they get around to the Somme. a batttle i had relatives on both sides in. oops how did that preposition get there? ok read it iffn ya like good war stories. and washtey, stihilijote washtay, wemisticashiw

    Sounds pretty cool.

    My Grandad's uncle was killed on the Somme, he was in the 20th Hussars - what units did your relatives serve in?
