GREAT WAR LIVES: A GUIDE FOR FAMILY HISTORIANS

Details

The Great War was a key event of the twentieth century and it is one of the most popular and rewarding areas for historical research - and for family historians. More records than ever are available to researchers whose relatives served during the war and Paul Reed’s new book is the perfect guide to how to locate and understand these sources - and get the most out of them. In fascinating detail he follows the stories of twelve service men who fought and died in the Great War – a rifleman an infantry officer a tunneller a gunner a Royal Marine a naval rating an airman and others. He describes their wartime careers and shows how they fitted into the armed forces. He looks at what they did at their lives in the front line in the rear areas on leave and at the conditions they endured and the experiences they had. And he demonstrates how the research was done and how the lives of these individuals were reconstructed - the methods that were used the sources that were consulted. Paul Reed’s informative and accessible book will be essential reading and reference for anyone who wants to find out about the Great War and is keen to understand the part an ancestor played in it.
