Newcastle United played a full part in the Great War and the fascinating and detailed story is told in To The Glory Of God. How the famous Black 'n' Whites coped with those years of conflict is related when more than 150 players and officials connected with the Magpies served in the armed services with many more engaged in essential work. Over 20 footballers tragically died. Stars of the football field found themselves all over the World facing the enemy; on the Western Front, in the Middle East, Turkey and Greece, in India and Russia. They faced death countless times and several won gallantry honours, the Victoria Cross included. The famous served alongside the not so famous and several players were wounded, some recovered and never played again, others returned to the game, even winning the FA Cup with United.
