WWI Crossing the Rhine

This picture is in my grandfather’s army scrapbook. Since I know he was with the army of occupation and he has this picture, I imagine he was there. Must have been an incredibly emotional moment for those who had endured the war.

In Blind Regret, a character of mine goes to Germany after WWI ends. The story briefly touches on the duties of an occupying force. A difficult time for those who only wanted to go home.
