Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the author of the bestselling Forgotten Voices of the Great War comes a final look at the last 21 living British veterans of the First World War. These interviews, conducted in 2004, will never be repeated, as the youngest was 106 years old, and most are now gone. These first-person accounts follow the young soldiers from their homes throughout Britain to the raging battles while in the service of the Royal Field Artillery, Black Watch, Royal Navy, and others. These combat experiences should never be forgotten.

Synopsis:

The 'Forgotten Voices' of the First World War speak for the final time. LAST POST is very consciously the last word from the handful of survivors left alive in 2004.

When they die, our final human connection with the First World War will be broken: after this book, we will have only recordings or diaries.

We will never again be able to ask a question of someone who was there.
