HIDDEN STORIES OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR

HIDDEN STORIES OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR 
A collection of true-life stories, at once enthralling and tragic, of ordinary people caught up in the Great War. Ranging from a boy who survived the sinking of the ship on which Lord Kitchener died, only to drown himself within months, to a woman who helkped a priest swim to freedom, this profusely illustrated book proves that truth is stranger than any fiction.
Who would have thought that the box under the bed or the faded photos buried deep in the attic could produce so many thrilling tales of wartime tragedy, romance, fear, revenge and hope? From the gifted chemist who faked his own suicide to go on the run with his bigamous bride, to the boy who survived the sinking of HMS Hampshire, the ship on which Lord Kitchener drowned, only to drown himself months later, or the woman who helped a priest swim to freedom - these true-life stories tell the extraordinary experiences of ordinary people who were caught up in the Great War. Copiously illustrated with photos, memorabilia and maps, this collection of 32 new stories brought together from across Europe gives a touching personal dimension to the four-year conflict.
