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.
