The Quick and The Dead: an illustrated talk by Richard van Emden

Richard van Emden


In no conflict, before or since, have so many British soldiers marched off to war, never to be seen again. They left distraught families for whom closure took not years but decades, and for some a lifetime. This is the story of those who are commonly forgotten when the fallen are remembered.

Through the stories, drawn from dozens of interviews, private diaries and unpublished letters, Richard van Emden tells the story of not just what became of our grandfathers, but what became of their relatives at home, and how their experiences influenced the generations they left behind.
