Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

This is the remarkably powerful and moving true story of a soldier who lost his memory and identity, and of a people in mourning, who found in him the symbol of their lost generation. With no memory of his name or his past life, and no documents or distinguishing marks to identify him, he was renamed Anthelme Mangin, and sent to an asylum for the insane. With the end of the Great War, a newspaper advertisement placed in the hope of finding his lost family found instead a bereaved multitude ready to claim him as the father, son, husband or brother who had never come home. With humane sympathy and the skill of a novelist, French historian Jean Yves Le Naour meticulously recreates the twenty-year court battles waged over the Living Unknown Soldier, Poignant, psychologically penetrating, and profoundly revealing of the human cost of war, this remarkable book portrays not just the fate of one individual but of a nations inconsolable post-war grief.

Anbieterinformationen

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
