Condition: Near Fine — in Near Fine Dustwrapper.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Following the great success of the best-selling Forgotten Voices of the Great War, Max Arthur has found and interviewed the last twenty-one British veterans of the conflict. The oldest of these men is 109, the youngest 104. In their own words they describe the extraordinary changes that have occurred during their lifetimes. Born in the reign of Queen Victoria, all have lived as adults through the Depression, the Second World War and the Millennium. But for these men, the Great War was the defining period of their lives. Some of them, mere boys at the outbreak, lied about their ages to join up. They saw action in the trenches, at sea and in the fledgling air services.”
