  1. Thanks and I had never heard about this.

  2. Who would have thought----the war has been over for 70 years!

  3. Thanks, I've heard of it, and got to 'see' a bit of it back in the 80s... NOT pretty...

  4. hey Irish,

  5. Thanks to all for stopping by. I too had heard of this, but didn't know it was this extensive. I've got a friend that from the mid-west that has relative in Alsace-Loraine. He is a big WWI buff/re-enactor and he told me after visiting several WWI battlefields in the mid-nineties that it was amazing what was still visible. He told me of seeing huge "mountains" of barbed wire throughout the countryside. Jeffery in Alabama
