Product description

Bringing Them Home: The Story of the Lost Sons of Wymeswold
Ivor F. Perry

Over a hundred years have passed since the Great War engulfed thousands of small communities. Around eighty men from Wymeswold, out of a total population of under eight hundred, are known to have served with the army during the hostilities. The tide of history has receded, leaving thirty names on memorials to the fallen. Who were these 'lost sons'? What was the story of their lives and deaths? The numbers of deaths as a proportion of those who served is almost three times the national average. How did the village react? Most people assume that villages were composed of families that had lived locally for generations. This book shows that then, as now, 'old' families and 'incomers' lived and worked side by side. As well as discovering the stories of these 'lost sons', Ivor Perry brings to life the diverse community of people who lived in Wymeswold around the start of the twentieth century.

In very good condition - would be as new if not for two very staple holes on the top of the front cover.
