Before the First World War, soldiers who died while serving in the army of the British Empire could not expect a lasting or fitting memorial, so it was often their fate to be forgotten, their individuality lost in mass graves that largely went unmarked and unnoticed. The First World War was to change that, because for the first time a remarkable organisation - the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) was created to ensure the dead would never be forgotten. In 'For the Fallen', stunning images illustrate the work the CWGC does around the world and captions provide insight into the history of this unique organisation, the character of the cemeteries and memorials it built after the Great War, and some of those who care for them. The book has been beautifully designed as a special centenary publication to honour those who died and provide a fitting tribute to the CWGC's work.
