Our hooman's Great-Uncle, Eugene, was drafted (lists of new draftees were published in local newspapers) to the Great War/WWI. He was captured by the Germans or, as he referred to them in his letters, by the Round Heads (German soldiers wore round helmets). His letters spoke of harsh weather, sparse if any food & being moved to different prisons. He knew what countries he was in but never sure where in that country (no maps). He was very thin when he got off the ship after 18 months in prison.
