Historian Walter Stephen reflects on the centenary of the end of World War I in A Dirty Swindle.
This is a collection of 12 stories of Scottish soldiers from the Great War.
A World War II veteran himself, Stephen tells the often neglected accounts of Scotland’s involvement in the conflict.
Stephen provides a level of commentary throughout, which allows a greater sense of relatability for the reader.
There’s also lots of images of WWI material, helping to illustrate the realities of this traumatic time.
