A side of history about The Great War that you won't get from the History Channel.

Bodies of War

Bodies of War  by Lisa Boudreau: 


Behind the scenes of today's centenary is the story of how next-of-kin and others tried to honor those killed in the Great War. In the book she describes how the politics of creating memorials often conflicted with the needs of veterans and relatives. A good read about an often neglected aspect of military history.
