The First World War claimed the lives of many millions of troops, and the bodies of about 3,000,000 were never identified. To emphasize the personal significance of each loss among the millions, author Neil Hanson traces the stories of three soldiers -- an Englishman, a German, and an American -- whose remains were never found. Drawing on their letters and those of others, in addition to family and hometown records, he paints vivid portraits of these individuals and the war's devastating effects on those who were mired in the trenches.
