This book is absolutely amazing and I do hope that Volume 2 for the rest of Warwickshire is in progress. What it contains is a list of soldiers, sailors and airmen who died between 1914 and 2005 and who came from South Warwickshire. They are listed in alphabetical order by year of death within sections devoted to each town or village. In some cases there are sections for individual war memorials. What is so amazing is that for most of the entries there is a brief biographical note giving the battalion, division and brigade served in the date of death the family details and addresses, where they worked before the war and what medals they were awarded. A treasure trove for genealogists.
