BOOK OF THE MONTH

Voices from the Front: An Oral History of the Great War

By Peter Hart

Profile, £25, 416 pages, hardback

It’s a sad, if inevitable, fact that first-hand accounts of historical wars are a valuable, time-limited commodity: veterans age and they die, taking their stories with them. That’s why the work of experts such as Peter Hart, oral historian at the Imperial War Museum, is so important. Hart recorded the memories of the men – soldiers, sailors, pilots – whose actions and decisions shaped the course of World War I, and their testimonies make up the bulk of this new book. It’s full of detail, drama and, most importantly, the emotions and insights of real people caught up in the midst of an almost unimaginably brutal conflict.
