Fourteen heroes of the World War 1. One incredible book.
In 1914 they were accountants, shopkeepers and labourers going about their day-to-day business. Suddenly, as war was declared, they became soldiers, sailors and airmen, fighting in the mud of the trenches, navigating the high seas or flying in the very first aerial war. Miles from their homes and families, they were pushed to their very limits and forever changed by what they experienced. Not all of them came back again.
Heroes of World War 1 is my attempt to tell the long-forgotten stories of fourteen brave men who rallied for their country. The voice of the ordinary soldier is often overlooked by histories of the First World War, this book is my tribute to them.
