An excellent account of the lives of four male ancestors and the parts they played in the First World War. The book is beautifully illustrated with photographs and excerpts from the family's archives and official sources. It is a superb resource that can be used by librarians and teachers to encourage children to research their own family histories and to learn more about the war and how it affected society at home and abroad.
An excellent book with web site information to get you started on your own family research.
Reinforces the understanding that soldiers are people with experiences apart from fighting in a war... manages to make social history personal.
Reminds us that soldiers are people with lives and relationships quite apart from their role as fighting men.
