Welcome to my website.
This website is the English language adaptation of my 2010 book (in French), Nous sommes Français, les Canadiens et les délivrés d'Écourt-Saint-Quentin, 3 septembre, 1918. For an English language review of this book click here.
It is the story of the first French civilians liberated during the military campaign of 1918, during the last year of the Great War (World War 1).
This webpage is, in fact, a book, so expect some reading. Please view the pages one at a time, in sequence. To this end I have added a Next page button at the top and bottom of most pages. Take heart, there are lots of pictures and maps. Make sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page before changing page as most of the maps and photos are at the bottom.
Move the mouse over the photos to reveal de captions.
Hyperlinks are in blue.
If you leave a review in the Guestbook, your email will be kept confidential and I will not contact you. The site is 100% secure.
If you want to contact me my email is below.
Have fun exploring!
