Summary
The tragic account of the schoolboys who volunteered to fight in the Great War, illustrated with archive photographs and documents Like many young men of the time, the boys of King Edward VI School saw the outbreak of World War I as an opportunity for bravery and excitement. By the time the Armistice was signed in late 1918, 31 alumni and one master had been killed. For such a small grammar school the cost was significant, as too were the number of awards for gallantry, including a Victoria Cross. Set against Stratford-upon-Avon and the boys' schooldays, this intriguing book details the boys' war and their involvement in the major battles on the Western Front, in Italy, Salonika, Macedonia, Gallipoli, Bulgaria, and Russia. Ultimately a tragic and moving account, it captures the heart of a small community and represents the sense of adventure with which young men went to war
