Last Post: The Final Word From Our First World War Soldiers by Max Arthur

The 'Forgotten Voices' of the First World War speak for the final time.

LAST POST is very consciously the last word from the handful of First World War survivors who were left alive in 2004. Now they have passed away, our final human connection with the First World War has been broken.

Max Arthur, a skilled interviewer, took the very last chance we had to ask questions of those who were there.
Now updated to include a new introduction by the author for the centenary of the First World War.

Last Post Reviews

For their devotion to King and Country and for Mr Arthur's work we should all be grateful * CONTEMPORARY REVIEW *
one you will want to add to your collection * THE GREAT WAR *
They are a remarkable band of men and the book tacitly salutes their courage, endurance and the phlegmatic manner in which many of them dismiss the war as merely a passing phase in their lives * Independent on Sunday *
A deeply moving meditation on memory, courage, comradeship and the powerlessness of the common man caught up in political machinery * Evening Standard *
Remarkably poignant -- James Holland * Mail on Sunday *
