About this title:

Synopsis: In the summer of 1914, our finest young men flocked to the colors in Northern towns and cities to answer Lord Kitchener’s ‘Call to Arms’ in a spontaneous burst of enthusiasm and patriotism. The Call appealed to their sense of adventure and offered an escape from the humdrum life of office, factory and mill.

The new recruits volunteered with brothers, cousins, friends and work mates. The newly formed units became the focus of local civic pride and soon became known as the Pals. The City of Birmingham formed three such battalions with over 3,000 local volunteers. This book tells their story.

Birmingham Pals is a story that covers the full range of human experience in war - the highest courage and bravery, the misery and tedium of trench life, the exhilaration, terror and slaughter involved in ‘going over the top’. Above all, it is a story of interest to people of all backgrounds and ages, as a tale of comradeship, which, for many survivors, was to last a life time.

About the Author: Since the publication of his first book Birmingham Pals in 1997, Terry Carter has been an avid researcher of Birmingham in the Great War. For over twenty years he has been a regular visitor to the Somme battlefields and feels honoured to have walked in the footsteps of Birmingham soldiers. He has visited the many graves of those who did not return.
