Shot at Dawn Executions in World War One by Authority of the British Army Act

by Julian Putkowski, Julian Sykes

Shot at Dawn Executions in World War One by Authority of the British Army Act Synopsis

The issue of military executions during the war has always been controversial and embargoes have made it difficult for researchers to get at the truth. Now these two writers give us a vast amount of information. They show that trials were grossly unfair and incompetent. Many of the condemned men had been soldiers of exemplary behaviour, courage and leadership but had cracked under the dreadful strain of trench warfare. This acclaimed book is the authority on this shameful saga.
