Though the process had begun in the Crimean War, and continued into the Boer War, it was the events of World War One that truly ushered in an era of community and national commemoration, honouring servicemen and women, that had never been witnessed before in Britain.

In this insightful book we explore how service personnel, veterans and civilians alike come together to remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
