Rutland and the Great War - Click for large image

A high quality hardback edition of George Phillips' seminal work, recording the biographies of Rutland's fallen in the First World War. First published in 1920, this second edition has been created by the Lord Lieutenant of Rutland's Committee for First World War Commemoration, as a limited edition to mark the centenary of the Great War.
This edition is more than a simple reprint - it uses the original text, pictures and illustrations, all of which have been adjusted and enhanced where possible to create a fine and appropriate tribute to those who lost their lives in the First World War. The book contains the biographies of all of those who were known to have died when the book was published, together with details of the efforts made in support of the war throughout the County of Rutland.
