A uniquely moving and insightful portrait of the First World War through the recently discovered letters and diaries of its participants . . .

Departing radically from traditional histories, 'A War In Words' tells the story of the First World War on a compelling, human scale through the letters and diaries of its participants - whether combatants, eyewitnesses or victims. This was a young person's war and these people record their experiences with all the immediacy and passion of youth. They talk to us directly from within the war itself and from all sides of the conflict - from the testimony of a Serbian teenager, one of Franz Ferdinand's assassins, to the final entry from a French soldier as he revisits a battlefield in 1919, realising he and the rest of the world have changed irrevocably.
