Somme
1/7/16 100th Anniversary
 
by Lyn MacDonald
 

The year 1916 was one of the great turning-points in British history: as the youthful hopes of a generation were crushed in a desperate struggle to survive, and traditional attitudes to authority were destroyed for ever. On paper, few battles have ever been so meticulously planned. Yet while there were good political reasons to launch a joint offensive with a French Army demoralized by huge casualties at Verdun, the raw troops on the ground knew nothing of that. A hundred and fifty thousand were killed in the punishing shellfire, the endless ordeal of attack and counter-attack; twice that number were left maimed or wounded. Here, almost for the first time, Lyn Macdonald lets the men who were there give their own testimony. Their stories are vivid, harrowing, sometimes terrifying - yet shot through with humour, immense courage and an astonishing spirit of resilience.

Lodge Books Publishing - One for the family.
 
Imagine being able to read a book written by your great great grandfather, a book which tells his own story, a book with your family history in his pictures and words. You cannot do this but now is a good time to make sure your great great grandchildren can. Write your own life story and have it published privately or for public access. You can then buy just one copy, or you can buy an unlimited amount of copies any time you want. Ian Gowland did just this. The cover of Ian's book below shows family pictures on the front and on the back, what motorbike he rides, where he lives, what he likes to drink, his weekly shopping bill and how he communicates. It is a moment in time captured for those who follow him. For someone, someday, your book can be the greatest story ever told. Ian and his family can buy a copy of the book anytime and get enough change out of £10 to buy a drink while they read it. Ask about publishing a gift for those who follow you.
