‘Every major war is followed by a history war examining all aspects before, during and after a conflict between nations. Truth in the telling of the story of war would help greatly, including preventing further wars. World War I established this nostrum and value even if it is rarely followed.’ Tim Fischer AC
In 2018, the world will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. Beginning on July 28, 1914 and concluding on November 11, 1918, it was one of the largest and bloodiest wars in history. Some 9 million people lost their lives during the World War but amongst the stories of death and destruction were legends of heroes, every day men and women doing extraordinary things. Author Kim Lockwood writes with passion and respect about the Great War, the men who fought, the battles, the casualties; his words are complemented by stunning
rare and iconic images from the battlefield.
