This book tells the stories of the sixty-eight young men, all pupils of a school in Hitchin, who died during the First World War. The book is illustrated throughout with lots of photographs, drawings and maps (many of which are in colour), and it provides not only a wondderful insight into what life was like in Hitchin at that time, but also an excellent account of the men who fought and died during the conflict....
From the rear side cover: This book is the product of a long, dedicated journey of discovery.... What has been revealed are the fascinating family and military stories of 68 boys from one small school in the one small town of Hitchin, who made the ultimate sacrifice in the war to end all wars.
This is not a book about monarchs, strategies and treaties. It is a book about the ordinary individuals whose lives, and the lives of whose families, were thrown into chaos by a conflict which still touches almost every family to this day
