Britain's Last Tommies by Richard Van Emden
Book DescriptionIt is now more than ninety years since the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, and, incredibly, a very few of the six million men who served in that bloodiest of wars are still alive. In BRITAIN'S LAST TOMMIES can be found the stories of those men, and of those who lived to a very old age and died only recently. They tell in their own words of suffering and courage, of humour and comradeship and of experiences that some of them say they would not have missed for the world, in spite of the cost. Richard van Emden has interviewed veterans over many years and has not only recorded their words and given a brief historical background to each chapter, but, uniquely, included his own memories of these remarkable men, so that in the book we get to meet and know them. This book is a heartfelt tribute to those few old soldiers who today represent the sacrifices of a whole generation that gave itself in the cause of liberty in the course of the Great War.
