frontaal! newsletter :
the best of our research & social media posts
In October 2018, in response to the transiency of photos, texts and articles on websites and social media, I published my book: "Liberation offensive in the Lys region: from Ypres to Gaverbeek." So that something "tangible" from my research work would remain.
Since then I have posted a lot of my research on Facebook and instagram, which required a lot of preparation. But these posts were likely to disappear again in digital history ... that's why I started to put all posts aside in a separate pdf-file.
This resulted in this ‘frontaaltours.com Newsletter’in which I have collected a selection of articles from the past period.
A large part is in both Dutch and English, as they were posted on social media, including emoticons. 😎😉
There are also some links in this newsletter to the 360° photos that I posted: give it a try!
It allows everyone (even those who are not active on social media) to quietly read all articles, to download them at once,or even print them.
Every item has been carefully checked and looked up.
I would really appreciate it, if you noticed me, when something is to be re-produced from my texts or photos, and that also a reference to www.frontaaltours.com would be placed.
Thank you, enjoy reading, all questions or comments are most welcome!
