This is a comprehensive and highly emotive volume, borne of years of intensive research and many trips to the battlefields of the Great War. It seeks to humanise the Menin Gate Memorial (South), to offer the reader a chance to engage with the personal stories of the soldiers whose names have been chiseled there in stone. Poignant stories of camaraderie, tragic twists of fate and noble sacrifice have been collated in an attempt to bring home the reality of war and the true extent of its tragic cost. It is hoped that visitors to the battlefields, whether their relatives are listed within or not, will find their experience enriched by having access to this treasure trove of stories.

Paul Chapman is to be warmly thanked and applauded for his research and for bringing this valuable information to our attention. He allows us to engage with the personal histories of the men who fell in Flanders, reminding the reader of the reality of war through their stories.The Western Front Association, Dennis Williams
