'Roll of Honour' examines how the Great War of 1914-1919 was experienced by school communities in Great Britain. It focuses on the myriad faces of war rather than traditional stereotypes. The impact of the first 'total war' on students, teachers and governors from across the social and educational spectrum - from the elite public schools to the elementary schools for the poor - is considered using a wide range of resources and case studies. 'Roll of Honour' is the first book in the 'Schooling and the Great War' trilogy.
