The Shadow Of War: The Great War Series Book 1



An extraordinary fictionalized account of one of the defining periods in modern British history, The Shadow of War is simply the most compelling account of the First World War you will ever read.

A novel from The Great War Series

June, 1914 . . .Beginning in the months before the Great War, The Shadow of War tells the story of a country, its communities and its people, as they are engulfed in a conflict which will claim the lives of many millions.

It is a story of rich and poor alike, of the leaders and those who followed them into war, of those who stayed behind to keep the lights on, of a thousand moments of heroism and self-sacrifice.
