KING SFO RD Below is a greqtly reduced illustration of the few handsome volumes &THE HUMAN STORY OF THE GREAT WAR Undying Memories of 1914-1918 The War as Seen by the Men Who Fought Written by the Men Who Were There' Edited by SIR JOHN HAMMER TON (Editor o f "War Illus tr a ted ,”“World War ,"etc. Writer o f the Famous War l-'itm “Forgotten Men ")|N this magnificent work— which, by an amazing coincidence. was completed only the day before the present War started— we celebrate the glorious achievement of the men who saved Western Democracy from an arrogant yet subservient race driven on by war leaders insensate and bloodthirsty. Today the same menace confronts us, and although the Second Grear War may not repeat in any measure o r degree the Great War of 1914-1918, yet the thoughts and feelings, the hopes and fears, the terrors and passions released by the last war will be released again and again during the course of this war. And it is with these thoughts and their relationship to the first World War that we are concerned in this particular work. No greater human document has been completed throughout the ages than this, the first and only authentic record of the out­standing events of 1914-1918— told by the men who were there! Thrilling, personal narratives of stirring deeds, human suffering and endurance, triumph and disaster, bring to life with startling realism the most dramatic and significant episodes wherever Britons fought in the last Great War.“ I Was There ”is the key­note of every chapter. Only immediate personal experiences are narrated, by fighting men of all ranks and from all services Augu.t 1918.

In all there are nearly three thousand photographs illustrating the progress of the war and showing it in all its phases.
