We're aready on the way to a sell-out, and we hope you will join us.

“And we saw Europe - the last opportunity - in its old guise . . . In 1914 it blew up, of course. The lights went out and it was never the same again." - George C. Marshall

World War I was more than just a war between nations. The "old world" was dying, and a new one had yet to be born. People of all classes and nations saw the conflict as some great cleansing fire that would lead to a better world. By the time it was over, millions of men and their dreams of progress had died in the trenches of Europe and on far-flung battlefields.
