[SUMMARY]
This is an exceptionally well researched, illustrated & superbly documented family grouping which defines the real 'on the ground' civil & military circumstances which swept up millions of our young men in the Great War. Two of the brothers, Edwin & William survived the war, but tragically & typically the elder brother, Charles, did not.
