Overview

It was during the early part of the new century that a young man left his home for a war in France, not like wars previously fought with horses and muskets or longbows as the English had used in previous wars in France. This time the enemy was not even the French, but the Germans who had swept into France. A war of the royal houses had began. It was said that the German Kaiser could not stop the war as it would ruin the railway timetables that victory was set upon all across France, Germany, England and later America. Sons, fathers, brothers, and husbands went to fight in this honorable war. Herbert Gough left his home and worked as a farm boy to join the royal horse artillery and fought in the battle of the Somme to see death and destruction on an unprecedented scale where a generation walked into the gunsmoke of the western front on that morning of July 1, 1916, singing as they went to face death on the barbed wire and against the machine guns. They were a blameless generation that had no need to die, but they knew it was their duty to die for king and country.
