La Lys

Yesterday, a few Portuguese remembered the Battle of the Lys (1918). Shortly, the biggest portuguese defeat since Alcácer Quibir, in 1578.
I had a grand-grandfather there. He was lucky, he returned alive and in one piece, but my parents tell me that the war changed him (for worse). Adding to that, the soldiers were not very well welcomed back by the Portuguese authorities...
I hope the only wars I have to face are these with my toy soldiers!
