Waves of Glory

Waves of Glory

by Peter Albano
Waves of Glory follows four British men of privilege watching the decimation of their generation in the trenches of the World War I battlefields. As the soldiers try to cope with the blood, violence, and death all around them, their world falls apart and nothing seems real except the overwhelming urgency of survival. The home front is no less compelling, as Albano illustrates the pain and uncertainty of waiting for the daily casualty lists that might include a brother, father, lover, or husband. The emotional energy of the men, the women they love, and their comrades in arms brings home the lessons that were arduously learned yet quickly forgotten in the “war to end all wars.”
