Let's not forget the war that was known as "The war to end all wars."

My grandfather was an American doughboy during that war and he was lucky enough to return home... without that luck, I wouldn't be here basking in the tropical sun.

Even today,the farmers are still turning up shells and human remains 

I was at the Vimy ridge memorial and enquired about the red flags by the woodland,the young guide told me that ,beyond the flags there are two unexploded shells for every square yard ,some of them are gas shells 

The whole Belgian and French border area is littered with cemeteries
