Discover one family's experience of the Great War. Five years of research has uncovered a history detailing the lives, adventures and tragic deaths of three of the four brave young Cole brothers. The story travels from the Somme, to the skies above the Western Front; from the Battle of Passchendaele, to the town of Brimscombe, Gloucestershire where dreaded telegrams would arrive. It includes, miraculously, survivable plane crashes in flimsy aircraft and lots of mud and vermin in the trenches. It is also a story of love, engagement, marriage and a baby, all set amid the backdrop of a war that seemed to have no end.
