I am presently reading The Great Silence by Juliet Nicholson, about the horrors of WWI and the aftermath in Britain. Soldiers lost limbs and even faces due to horrific gas attacks and hand to hand combat. Then they went home to a country that had no idea what they had really been through. But from this terrible time came incredible advances in such areas as prosthetics and plastic surgery. Many thanks to those who served both on and off the battlefield, and worked for peace.
