About the Author

Jean-Yves Le Naour is a history lecturer, specialising in World War I. His publications include Mis-res et Tourments de la chair pendant la Grande Guerre (Deprivation and Torments of the Flesh during the Great War), Aubier, 2002.


"'Fascinating and moving... Le Naour tells [Mangin's story] with judicious precision and admirable lack of sentiment...with impressive and unobtrusive scholarship and exemplary lucidity... In closing the book one is left with a feeling of great sadness and an abiding, useless rage against warfare.' William Boyd in the Sunday Times" "This hauntingly emblematic story reads like something Sebald would have taken up and absorbed." Telegraph "'A wonderful book: measured, meticulous and full of empathy' Rachel Seiffert" "'Irresistible... The Living Unknown Soldier is a book which grabs the reader by the lapels and never lets go. After I finished it, I found myself repeatedly manufacturing opportunities to tell my friends about it.' Scotland on Sunday" "'Written with poetic economy and terse understatement, The Living Unknown Soldier will surely become one of the classic accounts of modern warfare... Mangin's is one of the saddest stories of the pity of war that is ever likely to be written.' Trevor Royle in the Sunday Herald"
