Summary

Using the veterans' own words and photographs, the book brings to life a mixture of their excitement of embarkation for France, their optimism and courage, the agony of the trenches, and the fear of going over the top. The fight for survival, the ordeal of the wounded and the ever-present grief caused by loss and waste of life make it interesting.

Veterans: the Last Survivors of the Great War Summary

Veterans: the Last Survivors of the Great War by Richard Van Emden

Using the veterans' own words and photographs, the book brings to life a mixture of their excitement of embarkation for France, their unbound optimism and courage, the agony of the trenches, and numbing fear of going over the top. The fight for survival, the long ordeal of those who were wounded and the ever present grief caused by appalling loss and waste of life make for compelling reading. The veterans give us first hand accounts of stark honesty, as they describe in many cases more freely than ever before about experiences which have lived with them for over 80 years.
