About this product
- DescriptionNinety years after the cessation of gunfire on the Western Front, the Imperial War Museum pays tribute to the memory of those who fought its battles with a major new exhibition. The exhibition focuses on remembrance, houring the lives of the men and women who suffered the war's atrocities and this lavishly illustrated book is an arresting complement to it. Using letters, diary entries and eye-witness accounts, respected historian Robin Cross presents a compelling narrative of the war through the personal stories of its heroes. Including archive material published here for the first time, iconic photographs and artefacts that so strikingly evoke the Great War, this powerful and extraordinary book vividly brings its horrors and heroics to life with startling immediacy and poignancy. As the last of the veteran generation gradually fade from view, this remarkable book pays homage to their memory and provides new insights into a war which still resonates and fascinates today.
- Author BiographyRobin Cross is the author of over 30 books, including VE-Day and We'll Meet Again (with Vera Lynn), both bestsellers. He has written and directed nearly 200 television documentaries, many of them on military subjects, and was a member of the team reporting the first Gulf War for the Daily Telegraph. His latest book is a history of women and war, Hell Hath No Fury.
