A new book, which includes photos of First World War graves from across Britain and the rest of Europe plays tribute to the fallen heroes of The Great War.
Ahead of Remembrance Sunday this weekend and Armistice Day on Tuesday, we release photos from a new book called For the Fallen, a photographic tribute to those who lost their lives during the First World War, as well as celebrating the work of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC), which keeps their memories alive.
The book includes photos by Michael St Maur Sheil, a photo journalist who has been photographing sites of the Great War for almost a decade, with words by Peter Francis, a former journalist who has worked at the CWGC for 15 years, and a foreword by HRH Duke of Kent.
Before the CWGC was established in 1917 soldiers were buried in mass graves with no lasting memorials, but when Fabian Ware founded the CWGC during the First World War this all changed and this book is testament to the commission’s success in ensuring none of our war heroes are forgotten again.
For the Fallen is published by AA Publishing and available in hardback for £25.
