The Last Post: The Final Word from Our First World War Soldiers By Max Arthur
Orion | ISBN: 0752888722 | 2007-04-05 | MP3 | 65 Mb
FORGOTTEN VOICES OF THE GREAT WAR was the surprise best-seller at Christmas 2002, selling over 60,000 copies in hardback alone. LAST POST is very consciously the last word from the handful of survivors left alive in 2004. When they die, our final human connection with the First World War will be broken: after this book, we will have only recordings or diaries. We will never be able to ask a question of someone who was there.
Review 'poignant' -- Susan Osborne BOOKS QUARTERLY 'on this moving recording, stalwart British television actors Paul McGann and Clive Mantle perform the monologues of 10 of the soldiers. They adopt the voices of these largely working class heroes and bring the harrowing experience of life in the trenches vividly to life. LAST POST ably demonstrates where the audio book comes into its own. To listen to these personal accounts of the horror, courage and survival has infinitely more impact than reading the printed word.' -- Vidar Hjardeng FINANCIAL TIMES 'Having previously read the book, it is amazing how listening to it on CD brings it to life. The narrators may not be the actual soldiers but may as well be as you are transported back nearly a hundred years. It is deeply interesting and moving in equal parts and humbles you as a listener, here due to the sacrifice they made. Every home should have a copy of 'Last Post' and ensure future generations are kept aware.' www.FromBumptoGrump.co.uk '3 stars. Excellent.' FAST FORWARD 'This isn't war glamorised or sentimentalised, it's the real thing. "People still talk a lot of rubbish about the war. Only those who were there can tell what really happened," says one old soldier. Listen for yourself, he's right.' -- Sue Arnold THE GUARDIAN
