    To-day, 90 years ago, Great Britain declared war on Germany and Austria-Hungary, already at war with France, Belgium and Russia.

    The greatest tragedy of the XX Century had begun! :eek:

    How is the book going? If you are going to put a picture on the cover of your book or need more ideas then I saw this site. http://www.worldwar1.com/sfgrank.htm
    I was thinking of a title, How about Strategic Failures: and then in smaller print below that, The personal life of a German officer by General Fried esq.

    I watched some of the coverage of the British Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph. Beyond a feeling of reverence and respect, I had to think that the veterans of that war could never have imagined they'd be around to observe the 90th anniversary.

    It is amazing to think that there are only 25 veterns left in britain. its going past contemporary history further into the past. we owe this men a lot.

    There were 44 American veterans still living on Nov 11th, 2003. (The count is reported annually on Armistice Day.)
