Max Arthur - Octopus Books

Max Arthur is rightly seen as one of Britain's leading oral historians of the Great War, collecting first-hand accounts of survivors from Britain's armed services, and allowing their stories to be told to a wider audience. He has enjoyed great success with previous books Forgotten Voices of the Great War, and his most recent book Lost Voices of the Edwardians. He has now delved into the superb photographic archives of the Imperial War Museum and other collections throughout Europe and unearthed remarkable, never before seen images, that when married with his contemporary eye witness accounts, truly gives the reader a unique view of the horror that was World War I.

Ian Hislop is the editor of political satirical magazine Private Eye, and long time panellist on the well known television program "Have I Got News For You." He has recently presented the acclaimed series on Channel 4, Not Forgotten, tracing the myriad stories of those who survived, and were killed, in the Great War 1914-18.
