The Shadow of War The Great War #1 review ô 103 The Shadow of War is the first novel in Stewart Binns's new series which will see a book release for each year of the First World WarJune 1914 The beginning of another long prosperous summer for Britain But beneath the clear skies all is not as it seem as the chill wind of social discontent swirls around this sceptred isle Shots ring out in a distant European land the assassination of a foreign aristocrat From that moment the entire world is propelled into a conflict unlike any seen before This is the story of five British communities their circumstances very different but who will all share in the tragedy that is to come All that they have known will be changed for ever by the catastrophic events of the Great WarThis is a story of Shadow of War is the start of The Great War series of books by this author which will see a new book for each year of the duration of the war The story opens as the unrest in Europe starts to escalate and during the summer of 1914 five British communities are about to discover that the order of the old routine is about to change foreverWith his usual skilful style of recounting history the author has succeeded in giving a realistic portrayal of the effects of the first few months of the war and shows just how the different social groups adapted to living in uncertain times The ever changing tidal wave of political unrest is juxtaposed against the uncertainty of an increasingly difficult social situation and the communal feelings of both fear and insecurity acts as a palpable reminder of the uncertainty of impending warThe book initially gets off to rather a slow start not because the book is uninteresting far from it but because as with any new series there are people and places to get to know However as the individual stories start to coalesce the narrative starts to both educate and entertain and a feeling of rapport with the characters starts to emergeOf all the many books published in this centenary year of the start of World War One it is difficult to know which one to choose My thoughts are if you would like something that will take you gradually through the conflict year by year then this book with its solid beginning is a good a place as any to start
