Letters home from the front

Hans Hohmeister writes about a trench mortar attack near Balschweiler
Usually letters like these were censored. Linking the letter to the JMO of 313e Brigade and the history of Pionier-Bataillon 13 gives us a picture of what happened on february 12th and 13th 1916
Read the letter and the story behind it

Franz Seldte – Fronterlebnis: Dauerfeuer

In the second part of his First World War memoir Franz Seldte describes his life with the machine-gun company of Infanterie-Regiment 66, from the beginning of 1915 until the first day of the battle of the Somme. On this day he was badly injured and lost his arm. His regiment occupied a sector between Arras and Bapaume, near Puisieux and Achiet-le-Petit.
The content-analysis of this war memory is linked to several trenchmaps on Google Earth.
