This book tells the story of the people of Tyneside and Northumberland during the First World War, both in action on the Front line and on the Home Front. The book is filled with many previously unpublished accounts of life on the front line, the stories of soldiers written in their own words in letters from the front line and in accounts written in the years after that have remained in family archives ever since. There are also numerous accounts published in local newspapers during the years 1914-1919 - and not published since. Illustrated with a wonderful selection of photographs from the authors' extensive archive of original photographs and postcards, many of which have not been published since the war, this book presents a fascinating and revealing insight into the story of the Northeast, its military forces and its people during the Great War.
