Yes! This post has been launched on June 24, 2011 (discover here the very first post), exactly 1000 days ago. Since this date, without exception, I’ve published every day a picture related to the Great War (well, in December 2013, I’ve published once two posts the same day…). These pictures come from my personal collection, the books I own, the visits I’ve done on the field.
Many thanks to my blog followers (who live in every part of the world), my twitter followers (more than 1,000 as today) and people who send comments (especially Mike Brubaker, who has written more comments than I did :-)).
To celebrate this step, here’s a beautiful picture of Russian soldiers fraternizing with two doughboys in a French café located in Tréveray (Meuse). This picture is very similar to another one you may remember. Because of the Soviet revolution, these Russian soldiers were in fact almost POWs, who were working at the village’s canal, under the guard of US troops.
