The Shadow of War

The Great War Series Book 1




A new series and a book a year for each year of the First World War

June 1914: the beginning of another long, prosperous summer for Britain. But all is not as it seems - the chill wind of social discontent swirls around this sceptred isle.

Shots ring out in a distant European land - the assassination of a foreign aristocrat. From that moment the world is propelled into a conflict unlike any seen before.

This is the story of five British communities, their circumstances very different, but who will all share in the tragedy that is to come. All that they have known will be changed forever by the catastrophic events of the Great War.
