I recently purchased this wonderful title in the "In Flanders Fields Museum" in Ypres, Belgium. This book contains a story every day about the death of a solder in Ypres and where his name or body is mentioned in a cemetery in on the Menin Gate Memorial Walls. I recommend this book for reference and possible daily reading. Reading about a soldier's death every day on one battlefield is sure to give you a better more harrowing understanding of the reat sacrifices of the World War.

The book is written by five very well known authors of the First World War:

Ian Connerty, the Co-ordinating Secretary of the Last Post Association; Sir Martin Gilbert, an internationally acclaimed historian; Peter Hart, the Imperial War Museum's Oral Historian; Lyn Macdonald, Britain's most popular woman historian of the Great War; and Nigel Steel, the head researcher for London's Imperial War Museum.
