Manchester Hill

Laurie Pimblett

"Manchester Hill" tells of two brothers whose privileged lives are destroyed by the events of 1914-18 and their service in the trenches with the legendary 16th Manchesters; of how they marched to confront the most devastating German offensive of The Great War, in the certain knowledge that few if any of them would survive, and of life and death in the Military Hospitals of the time. A profoundly affecting tale of loneliness and rejection, pacifism and astonishing bravery, it is based upon the author’s extensive research into actual events and the experiences of two men - an infantryman and a medical officer.
