Geoff Dyer helps the world to remember the veterans who perished in The Great War. This is not a book on war; it is a book on how we remember a war and those who perished in it. Antony Ferguson narrates this short piece with just a hint of solemnity—appropriate for this subject—without becoming overly grave or somber. The author creatively uses art, photography, and poetry to make his point. The audio medium works especially well for the poetry—written more for the ear than the eye—and Ferguson does it justice. But a listener may long to see the images in the print edition to which Dyer frequently refers, though the audio version works without them.
