Empires of the Dead by David Crane


“You should read Empires of the Dead” was the text I got one evening. There was a show on TV for the Samuel Johnson prize shortlist. Not one to turn down a recommendation I grabbed it on Amazon (other booksellers are available, you know, if you want to pay more) and read through it in one night. To say I never knew the story behind the war graves makes it sound like I’d even really considered there was a story behind them. And I think that’s one of the great things about great books – they make you think about things in a new way and look at the way from a different perspective.
