This is section 34 for PL, thanks:
https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/historyofthegreatwarvolumeone_34_buchan_128kb.mp3

When I am reading this section, I realize that p. 390 and 391 are missing in the text source that I have originally supplied; those two missing pages could be found in the alternate text of <https://archive.org/details/in.ernet.dli.2015.210313>. I think therefore that we have to change the text source for this project. Can I do it myself or if Ann may help to make the change?

The link needs to go on the Project page of the MW, which is not accessible to you. I will take of it right now, thank you for letting me know!

Yeh, that's the reason why the history of WWI is so fascinating.

Section 38 is PL OK! That was a side of the Great War that I was not familiar with. Mostly new information for me.

Oddly enough, I find chapter 18 the easiest to follow when compared to other chapters. Since like many of us, I think the author did not have an intimate knowledge on the various regions described in the chapter, he could only describe them in a broader stroke, making the narration easier to follow. On the contrary, especially the description of the Western front, which the author must have a deeper and more intimate knowledge, the narration became more complicated. Of course, the fact that I am living on the other side of the European continent also adds to my confusion.
