LAST POST is very consciously the last word from the handful of First World War survivors who were left alive in 2004. Now they have passed away, our final human connection with the First World War has been broken.

Max Arthur, a skilled interviewer, took the very last chance we had to ask questions of those who were there.

Reviews

Nostalgic photographs add to the book's flavour, lighting up a time when generations predating the modern, pervasie 'me' culture lived and worked for each other.
TRIBUNE
For their devotion to King and Country and for Mr Arthur's work we should all be grateful
CONTEMPORARY REVIEW
one you will want to add to your collection
THE GREAT WAR
They are a remarkable band of men and the book tacitly salutes their courage, endurance and the phlegmatic manner in which many of them dismiss the war as merely a passing phase in their lives
Independent on Sunday
A deeply moving meditation on memory, courage, comradeship and the powerlessness of the common man caught up in political machinery
Evening Standard
Remarkably poignant
James Holland, Mail on Sunday
