The Great War: The People's Story

Random House / Arrow (July 2014)

Available in Hardback and now Paperback editions.

To accompany the broadcast of the ITV series, this book follows the stories of the characters featured in the series in more detail.


From the trenches of France and Belgium to the munitions factories of London and homes across Britain, The Great War: The People's Story takes us into the lives of ordinary people caught up in a conflict that changed the world forever.


"A handful of people dominate this wonderful book. They are not special or famous but their stories will haunt you for a very long time...Charman's great achievement is to let people who lived through all this speak for themselves. You will be torn between admiration, pity and anger." (The Herald)
