Those poor WW I soldiers, with primitive equipment, where did they find such courage?
Over here they didn't. They just went along because they had no choice. Those who didn't were court-martialled and executed... Huge controversy in France over should the soldiers who were executed for treason (i.e. sympathising with the enemy, refusing to march to a certain death under a volley of fire, faking illness...)Have you seen the movie "Joyeux Noël"?It's quite a good sculpture.
Not only do I need glasses, I also need to sleep, I'm not even finishing my sentences... Should these soldiers appear on the monuments dedicated to French soldiers who fell in 14-18?There. Now I'm going to bed. :-)
