Heroes Of The Line - Charity ebook in aid of Royal British Legion
Scott Addington tells the story of how he and his friend decided to CYCLE along the length of the front line of the Western Front, stopping off at the battlefields and war cemeteries and finishing up at the Menin Gate on Remembrance Sunday.
So this is the diary of his trip - the story of their adventure - and he also includes stories of some of the fighting men who are commemorated in the cemeteries that they visit.
The cycle ride raised £3500 for the Royal British Legion - and here is where YOU come in. The book "Heroes Of The Line - Two Guys, Two Bikes, 500 Miles of Trenches and an Army Of Heroes" is available to buy as a kindle download from Amazon. It only costs £2.50 and £1 from each copy sold goes to the Royal British Legion.
If you are not interested in the First World War, look upon it as a travel book - a sort of impromptu Bill Bryson on wheels - but do have a look at this, Scott has really put his heart and soul into this project and it deserves to be a great success.
