Gwybodaeth Bellach:
More than 700,000 British servicemen died in the First World War and 35,000 of these
are listed in the Welsh Book of Remembrance. Loss of life on such an immense scale meant
that bereavement became a shared experience throughout Britain as individuals and
communities attempted to come to terms with their grief. The war memorials found in almost
every town and village bear witness to the need felt in the post-war years to commemorate
the dead. These memorials have already been studied as repositories of political ideas and
as works of art and public sculpture, but little work has been done on the social history
of commemoration. This book provides the first comprehensive examination of the social and
political significance of remembrance in Wales. It places the commemoration process within
the wider context of Welsh history in the decade following the Great War, and studies the
impact of that war upon local communities and the ways in which those communities chose to
remember the fallen.
`She has written an important book about Wales at a watershed in its history and, as
the Great War fades beyond living memory, it will help us to recall the carnage and
bungled idealism of it all.' (Western Mail)
`For those members interested in war memorials (aren’t we all?), this book is a
‘must have’ . . . Angela’s analysis of that single photograph demonstrates
her depth of feeling for the subject of remembrance and is a lesson in the interpretation
of photographs and the huge amount of information that can be obtained from photographs of
social events . . . the quality of the information which it contains makes it well worth
the price.' (The Western Front Association Bulletin)
` . . . offers much more than a straightforward history of war memorials in Wales,
Angela Gaffney’s fascinating account focuses on people’s will to remember their
dead as they argued and co-operated, cajoled and compromised in the erecting and unveiling
of their chosen memorials. In this cogently written social and political history of
commemoration, we are reminded that the process of commemorating, as with so many other
human experiences, is a selective one . . . one is impressed by the wealth of sources both
contemporary and primary that she has drawn upon.' (Planet)
` . . . excellent and erudite book . . . Gaffney has produced a book of incredible
detail, almost overwhelmingly so for the casual reader, but she has brought out the
personal stories of loss which transcend a book of simple “history”. This is an
essential addition to the record of Wales in the aftermath of the Great War.' (New
Welsh Review)
`The book will be of interest to the ever-increasing numbers who now show interest in
this memorable and tragic period in our history, and in particular local historians. A
must for all Welsh museum libraries.' (Journal of the Royal Regiment of Wales)
`This is a scholarly book, based on historical records, which will be of interest to
those living in Wales and could encourage people elsewhere to research their own war
memorials.' (Wilfred Owen Assoc. Newsletter)
`The author is to be congratulated on giving us such a valuable and readable insight
into the decisions made at the time concerning memorialisation; long may the resulting
memorials be held in honour and respect.' (Stand To! The Journal of the Western Front
`Here is a fine study illustrating the enduring place of local loyalties in the
identities of the men who went to war in 1914 and of those who survived the war.
(English Historical Review)
` . . . her excellent study . . . ' (Social History Newsletter)
