1914-1918: VOICES AND IMAGES OF THE GREAT WAR
by Lyn Macdonald

This book uses personal accounts and illustrations, mainly from the author's own archives, to cover all aspects of World War I from the departure of the Old Contemptibles to fight the Kaiser in 1914, young men eagerly enlisting, high hopes of 1915 that fizzled out at Gallipoli, to the bloody fields of Flanders. It runs through the battles of the Somme and Passchendaele to the coming of the Americans, fighting in the closing months of the war, joyous celebrations of Armistice Day and the burial of the unknown warrior in the aftermath.

SOMME
by Lyn Macdonald

Since 1916 the very name of the battle has epitomized all the horror and hardship of the First World War. There was hardly a family in the land who had not seen at least one son join up in the heady enthusiasm that swept the country in 1914. The Battle of the Somme was their baptism of fire. A hundred and fifty thousand of the soldiers they proudly called "our boys" died in it, and three hundred thousand more were wounded.
