A brief account of events in Barnetby and the fate of its Boys during the Great War 1914-1919. War memorials are a staple feature of British life. Their ubiquity serves as a reminder of the price paid by previous generations, and in particular those who fought for in the Great War. Yet often the individual nature of these memorials gets lost in the scale of the conflict, such was its devastating cost in life and limb. The Barnetby Boys explores just one of these memorials, tracing the lives and deaths of those whose names are engraved into its stone surface. In doing so Roger Frankish makes startling connections between a world war, those who fought and died on its foreign battlefields and a small English village, showing how the repercussions of modern warfare are felt far beyond the hellish front lines. Expertly researched, with wonderful photographs and a very personal undercurrent, The Barnetby Boys is a book on the Great War that is not to be missed.
