    Such a beautiful tribute, Philippa. Thank you. I walked and drove in the Amiens and Arras battle areas (and elsewhere on the beaches) hoping to create a better picture for myself of the experiences of one of my great uncles. I can’t say I achieved my objective. But I did come away with a much stronger sense of the massiveness of loss, the overall destruction more than that of any individual. These specialized, smaller efforts, like “Dave’s,” are so valuable in my view because the colossal is brought to a scale that can be grasped emotionally.
