I was delighted to get this book as I had come across an article about it in an old Radio Times. It was a marvellous collection of anecdotes, letters, snippets of information collected by the rector of Great Leighs, Andrew Clark, from the moment WW1 began to its end. It inspired me to visit the village and even write a blog on the book. Facets of village life, a sense of really getting to know the people who lived there, the young men who went to war, some never to return was vivid. I felt I knew them all. These were real people, it wasn't a novel. That made it all the more poignant.

This is an edited version of the significant diary kept by Reverend Andrew Clark in Great Leighs, Essex, during World War 1. Having read the book before and knowing its importance I was keen to have my own copy. My second-hand version arrived quickly at a reasonable price and in good condition, thanks to good packaging. Reverend Clark was a scholar as well as a clergyman. He was determined to document properly the impact of war on his community, facts as well as rumours. In these anniversary years, it is an interesting task to read the entries for the appropriate month, e.g. April 1915.

The village where my gran & Grandad lived and worked before and during the great war, even a picture of my Grandad in it. Fantastic.

HASH(0x9d580bf4) out of 5 stars Memorable memoir 14 April 2002
By Beth S Wicker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I read this book over 10 years ago, and have not forgotten it. It is a wonderful evocation of day to day life in a small English village during "The Great War". Not a description of the war itself, but rather of the life of the village people during the war, and how they were impacted by the events of war, this book fleshes out the war as it was lived by non-combatants. I highly recommend it.
