This is a mail list that is dedicated to the History of the WWI era. It is
not specialized such as this one to any one aspect of the war. I have been
on it for

I have for posting a message is: and
for listserv stuff use: If you send a msg to this
address with the word HELp in the body you'll get back all the appropriate
list info.

Are individual copies of this available?
