There were many memorial books published after the Great War, most dedicated to specific colleges, professions or vocations. A number of them are works of art as well as being most informative and they often contain biographical information not readily found elsewhere. Some include all who served and not just those who perished. In most instances a quality photograph of each casualty is included. Almost all these volumes are long out of print and Naval & Military Press plan to republish selected tomes over the next few years. This volume is rather different to the majority in that it covers more than one war memorial. It is a lavishly illustrated book covering the majority of British Public Schools whose pupils made the supreme sacrifice. In this instance it is the memorials, that are in many guises, from plaques to plinths and crosses to chapels, rather than the fallen, which are featured.
