It is important to remember that many more men served in the Great War and returned, than were killed. Their lives would have been forever changed by the experience. William & Harriet Guest were very lucky that their sons came home safely! (As far as I can see.)

It was such a nice photo, from an area I have an interest in, that I was inspired to find out more! Much more research remains to be done on men who returned home. The Guests took me down a happy 'rabbit hole' for 2 hours or more! So glad there was no sad news.

CAN YOU HELP? I need to find as many Austro-Hungarian personal accounts (diaries, memoirs etc.) from I can (published or online). Preferably from soldiers who served in the last months of the war. All languages! Thanks!

strikes again. Political point to be discussed elsewhere, but yet another "donkeys" dig shows fundamental misreading of history. Alan Clark has lot to answer for... in terms of Great War history, of course. He was also a Eurosceptic, ironically.

, they should have asked you to write a chapter on aviation for that book. Beyond Lee Windsor's essay on innovation there's very little in there on the subject.
