Arise The Dead I
The Great War
This story—part memoir, part historical fiction—spans a period of one hundred years, from 1914 to 2014, with the main emphasis being on the years of the two World Wars. It concentrates on the lives of real people—the author’s parents, the author, a young pilot from New Jersey in WWI, and others—as well as some fictional characters, who all lived through one or both of the wars and were profoundly affected personally by them. Arise The Dead I focuses on World War I where the author’s father took part in the Battle of Loos (September 1915) and was wounded.
