£8.99In the small hours of January 1st, 1919, the cruellest twist of fate changed at a stroke the lives of an entire community.

For Tormod - a man unlike others, with artistry in his fingertips - the disaster would mark him indelibly.
Two decades later, Alasdair and Rachel are sent to the windswept Isle of Lewis to live with Tormod in his traditional blackhouse home, a world away from the Glasgow of their earliest years. Their grandfather is kind, compassionate, but still deeply affected by the remarkable true story of the Iolaire shipwreck - by the selfless heroism and desperate tragedy he witnessed.

In this acclaimed book, Trevor Royal shows how the conflict of 1914 - 1918 changed Scotland irrevocably by exploring a wide range of themes - the overwhelming response to call for volunteers; the performance of Scottish military formations in 1915 and 1916; the militrarisation of the Scottish homeland; the resistance to war in the west of Scotland; the boom in the heavy industries and the strengthening of women's role in society following on from wartime employment.Maximum quantity exceededMinimum purchase amount of 0 is required1 Left in Stock
£9.99This is the story of seventy-two men from one village who fought and died in the Great War. They were awarded very few medals and their military careers were unremarkable - except in the important respect that they, like countless other civilians, answered their country's call in its time of need.
this book traces the lives of these sons of Bridge of Weir, not just as soldiers, sailors and airmen, but as members of a small community which felt their loss intensely. At the same time it is also the story of the politicians and generals who planned the war, and how it played out over four horrific years. The brave men of Bridge of Weir knew little of the wider canvas - their experience was of the particular battles and other events in which they fought and died.
Supreme Sacrifice entwines these two strands to create a unique and poignant picture of the First World War.Maximum quantity exceededMinimum purchase amount of 0 is required2 Left in Stock
