St Neots and the Great War


    This book weaves together many personal accounts to tell the full story of St Neots and the First World War - not just the experience of the trenches and further afield, but also the impact the war had at home. Letters from those at the front feature throughout, illustrating the remarkable resilience of the men, their wit, humour and concern for those they had left behind. Research, war diaries, local newspapers, and the author's own extensive knowledge are used to bring together local, national and international components of what was the terrible conflict. St Neots and the outlying villages saw 208 of its men killed, whilst hundreds of others were wounded. This book aims to ensure that these men made will not be forgotten, and serves as a valuable tool for those seeking to read their stories and research their own family histories. uf
