By Renny Richardson
Throughout the centenary of the Great War, the author followed in the footsteps of those men from his home town of Crawley who fell on the Western Front. The passing of a century meant that some details had been lost but the truth about these ordinary soldiers’ experiences emerges for the first time. Moving tales of courage, heroism, suffering and the horrors of industrial war show just what the Tommies of a small Sussex town were made of. These are the stories that the men who fell could not tell and the men who survived dared not to tell.
