About this product
- DescriptionFinalist for the Silver Birch AwardWinner of the 2002 Information Book Award When World War I began in 1914, one knew that millions of young people would die in the agonizing years ahead. No one imagined the effect it would have on family life, or that whole villages would disappear, or thatentire nations would be changed forever. They believed their sons and daughters, mothersand fathers would be home by Christmas. They were tragically mistaken.With photos, memorabilia, and anecdotes, Linda Granfield brings us face-to-face withpeople from all walks of life who risked everything for their country. These painstakingly-gathered bits and pieces are remnants of conflict on a scale never before witnessed. Hastily-penned letters, tes written in code, and prayers for deliverance form an eloquent portrait of humanity, and a startling comment on the devastation of war.
