Why is it surprising that Germany wouldn't jump at the chance to relive it's WW1 defeat? The US returned Iwo Jima to the Japanese and Japan isn't anxious to dig up the thousands of it's soldiers who entombed on the island either.
My grandfather told me about the trench warfare. He never talked about it without widening his eyes and looking aghast. I knew what he meant from his expression more than the words. There were a lot of Canadians fighting and dying to liberate France.
Canadians still travel to France to visit the war memorials and battlegrounds for both world wars.
My grandfather who was in France died before I was born.
My father spent the war in the Pacific theater.
My father wasn't big on water so he flew with the RAF. I still have their medals, and both are in the online Veterans rolls so it's a bit nice to visit there.
