Three Farmers on their way to a Dance.
Starts with the titular 1914 photograph then follows the three into the war, along with two contemporary stories that connect with the historical one. Really good effort by one of my favorite contemporary writers. https://www.amazon.com/Three-Farmers-Their-Way-Dance/dp/0060975091
