Overview

Excerpt from Andrew R. Buxton: The Rifle Brigade; A Memoir

The following account of Andrew Buxton's life and War experiences has been put together, in the first instance, for the benefit of the very large family and clan of which he is a member and for an immensely wide circle of friends; both family and friends having expressed a keen desire to possess some permanent record of what he was and did. It has been felt, however, that what he wrote from the Front has an interest that is not confined to those who knew him personally, and it was therefore decided to publish this account rather than print it for private circulation. The letters make no claim to being literature, nor have they the artistic or imaginative interest of some other war books. On the other hand, written as they are by one who had a habit of minute observation and who took pains to record what he saw and experienced, the letters present a wonderfully vivid, detailed, and accurate picture of trench life and warfare as it was in 1915 and 1916 - times that are now (November, 1918) beginning to seem remarkably remote. It is, moreover, not impossible that the book will appeal to many on other grounds than these. The story of a Christian gentleman, one of the many thousands who have given their all in the great Cause, will always touch an answering chord in the hearts of those who have their faces set towards the same shining goal.
