freshtodebt asked: You're definitely my favorite war themed blog. You post so much stuff I find fascinating about war throughout history and the atrocities of what man does to his fellow human being. I've even gotten a few of my friends to start following you. I just wanted to share my appreciation, Lux. Thank you for what you do.

thank you for these words
