Book Description

2 Oct 2008

Ninety years after the cessation of gunfire on the Western Front, the Imperial War Museum pays tribute to the memory of those who fought its battles with a major new exhibition. The exhibition focuses on remembrance, honouring the lives of the men and women who suffered the war's atrocities and this lavishly illustrated book is an arresting complement to it. Using letters, diary entries and eye-witness accounts, respected historian Robin Cross presents a compelling narrative of the war through the personal stories of its heroes.

Including archive material published here for the first time, iconic photographs and artefacts that so strikingly evoke the Great War, this powerful and extraordinary book vividly brings its horrors and heroics to life with startling immediacy and poignancy. As the last of the veteran generation gradually fade from view, this remarkable book pays homage to their memory and provides new insights into a war which still resonates and fascinates today.

5.0 out of 5 stars In Memoriam 2 Jan 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As with most of the Imperial War Museum publications "In Memoriam" is an excellent issue. As we approach the one hundredth anniversary of the start of the First World War there is an increasing need for accounts about the men who fought and often paid the ultimate sacrifice of their lives; the personal history rather than the overview. "In Memoriam" provides this and while it is an older publication, the details in it are relevant and often most moving. Excellent illustrations throughout.
