From that appreciation came eventually the decision to offer this link in the continuum of history to a wider readership. This war though was only Act I of the epic ‘Great European Tragedy’. I used my own life time experiences to explain lessons from the events of the Great War. Children born during the 1930s are now uniquely placed to offer a link with events of the way things were for subsequent generations who will only see a two dimensional image of events. Amongst those with whom we are familiar were: parents, grandparents, uncles, cousins of various degrees, who in numerous roles, experienced, fought and survived the Great War.
