At the Going Down of the Sun - British First World War Memorials

£9.99

Product description

The First World War ended with the signing of the Armistice on 11th November 1918. In Britain as elsewhere, the community mourned its dead; and throughout the country public grief and pride were given practical expression in the creation of memorials.

In the years following the War, thousands of plaques, statues, monuments and even complete buildings such as hospitals were designed, erected and dedicated to the memory of those who had given their lives.

The book's purpose, with information about some three hundred First World War memorials in the United Kingdom, is to draw attention to some which are in danger, and also by describing some of particular interest or merit, to try in some small measure to create interest in, and respect for, such memorials generally, with the possible result that they may eventually be more highly regarded, and therefore better protected and maintained.

This book is in excellent condition throughout.
