DONLEIGH'S WWI WP

I never thought that I would do well on a WWI WP, but this was very enjoyable and informational. Great job!

I agree - it's tough to create WPs on history or geography. This was outstanding.

There was a spelling mistake; I filled in every word and still got in wrong. Absolutely great puzzle but it was the first onw I have ever bailed on.

Sandracam really liked it. So did I!

I enjoy historical puzzles. This one was well written, and the clues were helpful for sure. Congrats to Donleigh.
