- 5+ in stock
The 'Forgotten Voices' of the First World War speak for the final time.
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.
Now updated to include a new introduction by the author for the centenary of the First World War.
