"This is a remarkable account of a village's contribution to probably the most appalling war that there has ever been and to those who were in the Second World War, it brings home to how much more terrible was the 1914-18 War. It must have been a Herculean task to assemble all the data, photographs and memorabilia and I only write to congratulate you on what is remarkable achievement." - Lord CarringtonIn addition to a full run of The Lee Magazine, the author has drawn on a wide range of archive sources that include unpublished letters, diaries, memoirs and newspapers. Fromelles 1916 gives an unrivaled insight into the life and times of an English village in the First World War - a way of life swept away forever by the changes ushered in by the conflict.The book includes a guide to the Fromelles battlefield and new Pheasant Wood cemetery.
