Overview

In 1972, a team of academics and archivists from the Imperial War Museum set about the momentous task of tracing ordinary men and women who lived through one of the most harrowing periods in modern history, the First World War. Veterans from Britain, Germany, America, and Australia were interviewed in detail about their day-to-day experiences on and off the front. It has since grown to be the most important archive of its kind in the world. These audiobooks contain just a sample of these voices—some of which have rested unheard for more than 30 years—the forgotten voices of a generation no longer with us. This boxed set includes The First Year: August 1914-May 1915; Ypres and Gallipoli: June 1915-June 1916; The Somme and Back to Ypres: July 1916-July 1917; and From Cambrai to the Final Shot: August 1917-November 1918.
