This week guest presenter Barbara Hillier joins Charles to interview factual historian author Jacqueline Wadsworth to discuss her latest book "Letters From The Trenches". Published by Pen & Sword, this excellent hardback, uses previously unpublished family letters to tell the human story of the First World War.
Jacqueline has used correspondence between families and fighters from throughout the whole British Empire, uncovering the consequences for all the levels of early twentieth century society, including her own family.
