This 2014 collection of poems and short stories marks the centenary of the start of World War 1. Its much admired cover by SilverWood Books is based on Paul Martin's photograph of the war memorial of the small village of Termignon in the French Alps, sculpted by a son of the village. It is one of the few war memorials to represent grief not heroism and the village authorities had been told to take it down. Situated on the village outskirts, it attracts many visitors.
Aftermath, which earned a lovely foreword by Forces’ Sweetheart, Dame Vera Lynn, is testimony to the suffering and hardship of all those caught up in war and its repercussions which forces’ charities aim to relieve. All proceeds from the sale of this book go to the Royal British Legion. Paperback and Kindle editions available.
