We Forget Today: A Map of the Region Dated December 1920

We forget today just what an impact World War One had on the lives of its participants and their families.  When doing some research for the blogpost “Reader’s Question:  “Translating” Burial Locations…” from 5 May the webmaster came across the link below.  It shows French map Verdun 35 and it is dated December 1920, just a little more than 2 years after the Armistice.  One can see the villages / areas that are destroyed.  One can also see train lines–standard and narrow gauge, cemeteries and memorials, encampments, etc. that are currently in place.  The map also lists the number if inhabitants and the number of houses that have been repaired in villages.  Readers are encouraged to spend some quality time looking at the details.
