To Our Brothers. Memorials to a Lost Generation in British Schools
How did a nation famous for its stiff upper lip manage to convey
its grief, its love and its pride for some of the thousands of young
men who died in its service during the Great War? Drawing
on examples from schools across the United Kingdom, To Our
Brothers shows how it used the language and iconography
of Britain’s past, of its religion, art, architecture, literature and
mythology to articulate what words alone could not.
Beautiful, atmospheric photographs reveal many previously
unknown treasures from some of Britain’s best known architects
and members of the Arts and Crafts movement.
Featuring Downside’s war memorials, this book is perfect for those interested in both Downside’s history and also the remembrance of schools across the country.
