Trenches Selected Tours

This site has grown beyond all of my expectations over the past year and a half. I'm partially concerned that it may have become overwhelming to newer visitors. A substantial portion of this growth is the result of the many contributions I have received from all over the world. Many, many thanks to each of you who have taken the time to develop these articles. And as for you tourists, be sure to take the time to drop a contributor an email if you find their article of interest. It's the only compensation they get!

So with the above in mind, I've decided to offer several guided tours of the web site, each with a different motif. Each set of links groups pages of related content. Hopefully this approach will give you a less random view of these trenches.
