The 'Forgotten Voices' of the First World War speak for the final time. Updated with a new introduction by Max Arthur.
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.
A remarkably poignant book - MAIL ON SUNDAY
An extraordinary and immensely moving book
These stories are so harrowing, and their witness so precise and devastating - THE TIMES
Crammed with such details, conjuring up the atmosphere of war as vividly as the frequent descriptions of appalling violence - DAILY TELEGRAPH
