"That is was what struck me as my trip continued; head stone after head stone, name after name, inscribed in gold on white walls. People, not battalions and brigades, flags or territories, but people who had their lives cut tragically short defending the ideals of liberty and freedom."
Michael J Murphy, France 2018.
