2nd imp., 1964. Xii + 98 pp. D.j., 22 x 14cm. Top edge foxed o/w V.G. Written while the experiences of youth were still fresh in the author's mind, this is the story of a seventeen-year-old boy from the time he joined Kitchener's Army, as one of the first hundred thousand in 1914, until he found himself in hospital – an officer with the Military Cross – recovering from his last wound, on the day of the Armistice, 11 November, 1918. This is a personal account that vividly portrays the horror peculiar to trench warfare in the First World War.
