Shot at Dawn
Offer Price £0.00
The heartbreaking stories of the men who fell in front of the firing squad are told in the third Daily Mirror magazine marking the centenary of the First World War.
Shot At Dawn features some of the terrified young men who ran away from the German guns only to be killed by British ones, and includes the first-hand experiences of those who had to pull the trigger.
The magazine also tells the story of the home front, highlighting in particular the important role women played as they took up men's jobs in the workplace, and includes a FREE reproduction of the newspaper published the day after the first German bombing raid on British soil in 1914. Extracts from Lillie Scales’ diary, meanwhile, provide a fascinating account of life in wartime Britain.
Our feature on the Battle of Jutland also offers a vivid account of what happened when the British and German fleets clashed in the only full-scale naval battle of the war.
We look at how the third year of the conflict was reported through the front pages of the Daily Mirror, from the VC hero who shot down a German airship to David Lloyd George taking over as Prime Minister and America’s entry into the war. There is also another incredible selection of images, many of which can be seen for the very first time.
Meanwhile, we tell the story of the flying ace who became Britain’s highest-scoring WW1 ighter pilot, and reveal the ten sons from one family who went off to war – and who all came back alive.
Incredible images, historic newspaper pages and amazing personal stories... Shot At Dawn is an unmissable addition to a series of magazines commemorating one of the bloodiest conflicts the world has ever known.
