Hear The Boat Sing : Oxford and Cambridge Rowers Killed in World War I Hardback
During the First World War many sportsmen exchanged their sports field for the battlefield, switched their equipment for firearms.
Here acclaimed author and screenwriter Nigel McCrery investigates over forty Oxbridge rowers all of whom put down their oars and gave their lives for their country. Complete with individual portraits, these brave men are remembered vividly in this poignant work and, together with a new memorial to be unveiled at the 2017 Boat Race, there is no more fitting tribute to these men who made the ultimate sacrifice.
