Remembering the Fallen of the First World War Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

REMEMBERING THE FALLEN OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR takes a fascinating and detailed look at how servicemen killed during the First World War were commemorated.

Beginning during the war itself, the book investigates the options available at the time - repatriation and normal burial were intially considered, but the sheer number of the dead precluded this, so cemeteries close to the battlefields became the only realistic option.

The book chronicles the work of Sir Fabian Ware and the Imperial (now Commonwealth) War Graves Commission in setting up permanent and beautifully maintained cemeteries after the war as well as local war memorials, plaques in churches, books of remembrance and so forth.

The book also includes poetry written and artwork created to honour the fallen, and offers advice on how young readers can find their ancestors' war graves.

A must-have book on World War One for ages 11 and up.
