Among the entries listed here are biographies of the Irish nationalist Sir Roger Casement - executed as a wartime traitor by the British government; and Tom Hazell, who as a leading airman with the British Royal Flying Corps achieved some 43 aerial victories.  Among others there is also a biographical sketch of Sir Hubert Gough, a key wartime commander ultimately relieved of active command on account of perceived failures during the Passchendaele campaign.
