What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Memoirs of a British subaltern first published in 1933; vivid descriptions without embellishment of life on the front lines written by a survivor of the 1916 Somme offensive. Unabashedly intended as an antidote to the usual downbeat 1930's war memoir."
– Western Front Association

"As riveting as it was at its first publication."
– Bookwatch
