History

If you look above my Daily Reads list you will see a new section called Fascinating. The one link in that area is called WW1: Experiences of an English Soldier.

This gentleman's grandson (or maybe it is his great-grandson) has collected all of his (great?) grandfather's letters from WW1 and is posting them 90 years to the date that they were written. It is FASCINATING to read.

I'm not much of a history buff, but I love looking into someone else's life. I think we all do, or we wouldn't be so hooked on blogs. I love reality shows and reading true to life stories and this is about as REAL as you can get.

Take a peek -- start in the archives. I guarantee you will be hooked.
