The Fallen: A Photographic Journey Through the War Cemeteries and Memorials of the Great War 1914-18 Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The 100 years since the beginning of World War I have undoubtedly proved that the cemeteries of the conflict have admirably fulfilled their tragic and sombre purpose. The task which faced the Imperial War Graves Commission at the end of the war was formidable indeed. The results of its hard work, to restore the resting places of the dead of the "war to end all wars," can be seen in this outstanding book. The Commission, now the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, still maintains these beautiful cemeteries to provide a dignified and peaceful resting place for those who sacrificed their lives in the cause of freedom. John Garfield captures the poignancy of those cemeteries in Flanders, Marne, Aisne, Artois, Ypres Salient, Gallipoli, Verdun, The Somme, Italy, and Macedonia with exceptional photographs. Each is complemented with a short description of who was fighting whom and the place and date of each encounter. In the final chapter, "The Aftermath," John Garfield examines the memorials to the dead and murdered from the battlefields, cities and concentration camps of World War II, Dunkirk, Dresden, and Dachau, and ends with the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.
