This review is from: The Accrington Pals (Acting Edition) (Paperback)
A smashing little book. Accrington Pals is about kitchener's volunteer army during World War I. This army was made up of friends, brothers, cousins - 104 men were recruited within the first 3 hours - half being recruited from Accrington. There wasnt a person living in Accrington and the surrounding areas who did not know someone in this volunteer army. They were trained to fight. A very moving true story about about what happened to these often young men when they went off to war. A great little play.
