Barrie S Barnes

Barrie S Barnes, BA/Hons, M/Phil, was born in the city of Hull and now resides in Market Weighton, East Yorkshire. In his early life he worked in a number of varied occupations for 18 years and eventually joined the teaching profession, where he worked for 26 years, retiring in 2007. This is his tenth book, his first ‘This Righteous War’ coming out in 1990 and his ninth, ‘Chaos in the Sand’ came out in 2017. He continues to work on other manuscripts relating to British military history and is a tireless researcher as he records the experiences of the men and women who served in the World Wars. Barrie spent the 80s and 90s recording thousands of interviews with veterans and collecting manuscripts and images of the time. All of this information he weaves into a stunning narrative that gives us an insight into how the war affected ordinary people, from the boredom of basic training to the horror of the most terrible battles in human history, and how men survived the horrors of the battle-field as they watched their friends fall one by one, month after month, year after year. He has made it his task to make sure these memories are not forgotten by future generations and that their sacrifices shall not have been in vain.
