Hi Im Simon. A History graduate

I have had a passion for history since a very small child.

One of my most passionate interests is "World One War"

I have created and online magazine which looks at every aspect of WW1...

The characters, the campaigns, the weapons, re-enactment groups and much, much more.

If you would like a FREE 78 page copy just visit...

www.worldonewar.com

Pass on Dugouts details to friends and family who are or would be interested in our Hubs so we can be crowned king of History Hubs

Keep marching :)

Simon
