    ... and miles of gently rolling hills, with fields of wheat and barley and stands of trees and the church spires of small villages. It is unbelievably peaceful and beautiful. It is very strange to contrast it with the photos of the land during the war, with nothing green or growing anywhere, just some blasted tree stumps now and then. The land, at least, as healed.

    ... and unknown fallen soldiers. We also walked to a second, significantly smaller grave sites; it was heartbreaking reading some of the ages on the tomb stones, most ranging from 16-22 but also some that were 40+.
