I read this set of three books over the past year or so, all by the late John Masters, written between '79 & '82.
1, Now God Be Thanked. 2, Heart of War. 3, The Green of the Spring.
All cover the effects of WW1 on an area of Kent & follow the men who went off to it. My own granfather & two great uncles fought in & survived this war, so it is of great interest to me. I am not sure if they can be bought new but can be found second hand - as I did. Grandad always said 'The best monument to the fallen youth would be to all agree to never let it happen again' The books  back this up. I have also been to Flanders & France to try & understand the war better & hope one day to walk the Somme. [/i]

We maybe talking about the works of more than one John Masters, but it would appear that he was very prolific.

I'll certainly look out for his books.
