    Living where a bloodbath was expected daily

    Cameos of the Western Front: Salient Points Four, Ypres and Picardy 1914 ¿ 1918 by Tony Spagnoly and Ted Smith, is a collection of portraits, in words and pictures, of several individual officers and men who served in the Ypres and Picardy sectors during World War I. Making liberal use of contemporary and modern photographs as well as letters home and official reports, these portraits convey to us something of what it was like to experience bloodbaths as daily events. The result is a sometimes wistful and always moving insight into the soldier¿s life and mind when he is expected to fight without complaint on a distant, ghastly plain. Perhaps the strangest story is that of Wainwright Merrill, an American from Massachusetts, who changed his name and joined the Canadian military. Merrill went to war for England, and no one knows why he changed his name or why he chose to fight for a land he had never seen. But fight he did¿and on his third day of combat, he was killed. This slim volume tells many such fascinating stories. This series is a gem and it is highly recommended.
