Product description

Review

Superb ... Shattering for its wealth of tiny heartbreaking truths (Daily Telegraph)

Incredibly moving ... Remarkable (Daily Express)

A moving account of the emotional, physical and financial hardships suffered by the families of the fallen. It provides a poignant memorial to what one relative called the "heart hunger" caused by the loss of a loved one in battle (Sunday Times)

An engrossing insight into the human cost through the memories of some of the last of those children (Glasgow Herald)

Book Description

There have been many books on the soldiers who fought and died in the First World War - The Quick and the Dead is the first history of the wives and children who were left behind.
