New book launched with personal letters and memoirs from the Western Front

As Remembrance Day approaches, we are delighted to introduce a new book out which includes fascinating new insights into the 1st-hand experiences of those involved in The First World War.

Alan Weeks takes us on a journey into the real lives of those on the Western Front with memoirs and diaries from all walks of life. As well as poignant stories and black and white photos from military personnel, he includes those from other less heard from professions such as stretcher-bearers and cooks.

These personal accounts are edited and intertwined with Alan's own words which even include excerpts from his own father's diary. Throughout the book the reader is given a both an historical account and moving insights into the horrors of war.

In the words of one of the diarists, "No word of mine can describe the dreariness and hopeless desolation of the scene, wrapped in mist and rain"
