This magazine article is about the 1936 reunion at Verdun, where the old soldiers of the World War I once fought some of the most slaughterous engagements in that war:
"Called together at historic Fort Douaumont, captured and retaken a score of times during those dark days of 1916, to swear a solemn oath to work for peace, the disillusioned survivors of their father's folly found Verdun changed, yet unchanged and changeless."
The article is filled with stories of how those middle-aged veterans gathered to swap stories, walk the Ossuary, sing songs, cry, remember and forgive one another.
