New book by Andy McKinnon


available now.

When the Great War began in 1914 Arnold was a small town of just over eleven thousand people. During the following five years, over two thousand Arnold men enlisted into the armed forces to fight for King and Country. Almost 300 of them never came back. Of those that did, many suffered for the rest of their lives. After four years of research, Andy McKinnon has found over 1,900 of these men. This book tells their story.
