Book reseach


Recommended Posts

Hi I am new to this forum and would like to say Hi to all.

I joined here as I am currently reseaching a book I am wishing to write set during WW1. I have found some wonderful infomation on this site but still require further help. my basic Idea for this fiction novel is about a English chap being drafted doing training and going to the war. As i feel strongly about this I would like all aspects to be accurate to the letter. I have found some answers to my Questions but require more.

Basic things first I would like to know the draft process.

Was it by letter?

How long would the person have before going to training?

How would the person get to the training camp?

I've always found abebooks.co.uk very good.

(They have 2 copies from the UK listed)

I have just bought a copy from N&M. Delivery next day. Very useful and 'academic' in structure and presentation. However I find it tedious and am far from convinced by many of the theses.
