Excellent and moving,

This review is from: The Quick and the Dead: Fallen Soldiers and Their Families in the Great War (Kindle Edition)
This book examines the effect of the First World War on families: the soldiers, their wives, and their children. A number of the latter were interviewed by the author, and their testimony makes extremely sad, moving, yet sometimes inspiring reading.
If you enjoy the Max Arthur "Forgotten Voices" books you will probably enjoy this. The format is broadly similar, though in this book Richard Van Emden provides much more linking and commenting material between the extensive quotes.
There are already numerous books available on the First World War, with no doubt many more to come, but this one is definitely worth reading.
