From Stanhope Forbes's portrait of his son, painted from memory shortly after he was killed, to a box of fragments of a downed German airship,this book presents a collection of 100 items assembled for the Antiques Roadshow's special First World War programmes. The show's expert Paul Atterbury investigates each keepsake and tells the stories of the people behind them, their lives before 1914, their role in the war and the wider history that was unfolding around them.
