Brothers in War is the immensely powerful story of eight Beechey brothers, and how they paid the ultimate price for King and country in the Great War. Some were keen to enlist from the start, others were conscripted and some dead against. Eventually, all eight would be swept up into its devastating path as, despite astonishing displays of courage and strength of character, they met their fates on the battlefields of France, Flanders, East Africa, and Gallipoli.

Theirs was a tragedy almost without parallel and one that has remained forgotten and unmarked for nearly 90 years. Until now, kept in a small brown case handed down by the brothers' youngest sister, Edie, were hundreds of letters sent home from the front by the Beechey boys: scraps of paper scribbled on in the firing line and sent to their widowed mother Amy, heartfelt letters written from a deathbed, exasperated correspondences detailing the absurdities of life in the trenches. From it all emerges the remarkable tale of a family forced to sacrifice everything. Download and start listening now!

    " One of the many WWI books I have read about 8 brothers who all fought in the Great War. A brilliant read. Their mother lost her husband before the war and she had to endure waiting for news of her sons. "
