The Good Book Guide Review

This is a powerful collection of stories, poems, paintings, biographies, histories and personal accounts from the First World War. Chosen by a variety of people, including writers, actors and politicians, they all have one thing in common – the contributed piece has deeply moved them. This book is a beautiful and detailed tribute to those who fought and died, and an important way of keeping their memory alive.
