Overview

This scarce classic book details the author’s journey to become a Canadian infantryman in the Great War, initially describing his training, and then concentrating on his experiences in the trenches as a machine gunner. Although sometimes humorous and light, this engaging and accessible text describes with the unmistakable grit of authenticity the horrors and vagaries of trench life in vivid detail. A must-have for anyone interested in factual accounts of war, The Emma Gees promises to inform and engage readers with an authentic war-time tale of desperation and fear. Herbert W. McBride was a Captain in the Indiana National Guard whose work is often hailed as the best first-person accounts of World War I. This book was first published in 1918 and is republished now with an new biography of the author.
