Two More WWI Posts from Denzil

Talented blogger and British ex-pat now living in Belgium, Denzil Walton, has written two more excellent blog posts about the affect of Word War I on Belgium.  These are must-reads today on the 100th anniversary of the Armistice.

Armistice Day 1918:  What happened Next?  When the Flemish people returning to Flanders Fields after Armistice Day 1918, they were greeted by scenes of total devastation

How did World War 1 Start? Belgium still carries the marks of its 4-year occupation which saw much of the country – particularly the Westhoek, or Flanders Fields – totally destroyed and around 100,000 Belgian soldiers and civilians killed.

  1. CP, sorry the graphic did not show up. It is a very nice graphic. Thanks for taking the time to respond.
    The lovely graphic of a backlit American flag superimposed on a flying eagle and a mountain range says “Veteran’s Day, Honoring All Who Served.”
