From the rear side cover: The major impact the First World War had on Nottingham is explored year by year in this book. Drawing on the local newspapers for both information and illustrations Peter Foster brings these times to life. Little attention has hitherto been given to this era in Nottingham's past. That deficit has now been remedied.

The Lenton War Memorial, unveiled in 1920, bears the names of 286 men plus one woman. Captain Albert Ball V.C. is the most famous name and his story has been told many times. In Lenton: A Suburb's Sacrifice, Stephen Zaleski provides brief profiles of all the others named on the memorial along with profiles of additional local men who might well have been included but weren't.
