With a foreword by Dame Vera Lynn, this book is a collection of poems and short stories by Jenny Martin, the author of 'Mining Memories' and runner up in the Arts and Literature Section of the 2011 Hunter Davies' Lakeland Book of the Year Awards. 'Aftermath' is testimony to the suffering and hardship of all those caught up in war and its aftermath, and a tribute to the courage, compassion and care for others that transcend the barriers of race, class, creed and species. But the help of charities supporting ex-service people and their dependants is still needed for the many struggling against heavy odds to rebuild their own lives. All proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.
A collection of poems and short stories to mark the centenary of the start of the First World War on 4th August 1914.
