This skilfully compiled anthology draws on the phenomenally successful Forgotten Voices series. Lest We Forget brings together first-hand recollections from the Great War to World War II, to vividly illustrate the impact of war. Told in the actual words of the men, women, and children who lived through a century of war it is a moving insight into the greatest conflicts of the 20th century. The testaments of those who were there depict the horrors of war, yet also provide inspiration with tales of enduring courage, sacrifice, and daring. Arranged thematically into chapters such as hope, fear, the kindness of strangers, the human cost, and brothers in arms, it reveals the full scope of war in all its stark reality. Evocatively illustrated throughout with line drawings from the Imperial War Museum's archives, it will appeal to anyone wanting to gain an insight into not only specific conflicts, but the overarching and sometimes surprising effects of war in general. Lest We Forget vividly ensures that the wartime experiences of ordinary people will never be forgotten.
