Executed At Dawn

Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

Much has been written about the 302 British and Commonwealth soldiers executed for military offences during the First World War, but little about the men who carried out the sentence – the members of the firing squad, the officer in charge, the medical officer and the chaplain. Drawing on extensive research, this book uncovers the personal testimonies of the men forced to shoot their fellow soldiers, and the lasting effects of this grim duty.
