For the time being, it is the valiant poilus of the First World War who interest us: as you know, Laurent Guillemot has traced the lives of the 107: we now know a lot about their lives, and especially their fierce fighting in the trenches. But to illustrate the book we wish to publish, we are looking for portraits, correspondence, memories about them. Ask your relatives: if you don't have any archives on grandfather Emile or uncle Jules, perhaps one of your cousins has some?
