  • THE FIRST WORLD WAR MEMORIALS OF LINCOLNSHIRE by Michael Credland

    War memorials gave families and friends a local focus for the mourning and remembrance,and the scale of loss in the 1914-1918 conflict was such that almost every town and village in the land has some form of memorial.The first world war memorials of Lincolnshire provides a comprehensive gazetteer of the 295 external ww1 memorials in the historic county.Here is the story of each war memorial,each is illustrated,many with historic photographs of the dedication and unveiling. Included is a register of all the names from ww1 and later conflicts that appear on the memorials. Michael Credland has studied Lincolnshire's war memorials for over three decades and brings his research and expertise together in this superb book,the first to cover comprehensively Lincolnshire's commemoration of the great war.
