about this item

In 1914 they were just ordinary men, going about their ordinary business, until one day that telegram arrived and their world was turned upside down. These are the stories of 12 ordinary men who were sent to fight and (sometimes) die for their country during World War I. These are the stories of the accountants, the shopkeepers, and the laborers who found themselves living and fighting in the mud of the trenches, sailing on the high seas, or fighting the very first aerial war. This is their story. They are all heroes. There have been numerous memoirs and histories of World War I, but the voice of the quiet heroes is often lost. This is a narrative history conveying the heroism displayed by ordinary men in the trenches, in the air, and at sea during WWI.
