I've been watching an excellent series of programs on the Military Channel on WWI......from the assassination of Ferdinand until the signing of the armistice and beyond. Seems like we've all seen the old footage of WWII, but sadly 'The Great War' has somehow been slighted. I saw footage from England, France, the U.S., and Germany.....all through the lens of photographers from each side of the same battles.....very interesting and well done.

Here is a film about MIS-X. I doubt anyone here has watched it.

Military channel? You mean "American Heros" Channel. Used to be my favorite channel. Ain't the same. Harrumph, get off my lawn.
Yeah, I agree, it isn't NEARLY as good as the old Military Channel, but it's a helluvalot better than HoneyBooBoo!

I'm glad she got to see some of it. It has to be impressive in person. Ground zero for Armistice Day. Eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

One ceramic poppy per casualty, very moving. Also poppy lapels and broaches quite common honoring the fallen both now and every year. She said in person the red was a stunning contrast to darker buildings and grey sky
