FOR the Fallen is a touching collection of photographs to honour the unsung heroes of the Great War and the tireless work of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) which keeps their memory alive.

From headstones in the remote Namib Desert to those in the lush undergrowth of Buff Bay in Jamaica and from an isolated grave on a tiny island on Loch Shiel to the 72,000 names on the Thiepval Memorial in France, this book commemorates some of history’s most devastating battles and the men and women who fought and died in them.

Acclaimed photo journalist Michael St Maur Sheil visited more than 270 CWGC sites in the course of creating the book, which also includes a fascinating overview of the history of this extraordinary organisation, written by Peter Francis.
