Troops Riqueval Bridge WWI

This is a photo from World War I, it was taken at Riqueval Bridge.  It is a very famous photo, although I myself have not seen it before, and I've followed a lot of WWI history, but it is a powerful photo.

Next year will be the 100th Anniversary of WWI.

These men I knew as a child and teenager.  They were my friends grandfathers, I visited widows of this war, ones who never married again because there were no young men left to marry.

Now they are all gone.

The war to end all wars.
