Shortly after her father died aged 91, the author found all his First World War diaries in the attic. As a great coincidence, two other detailed diaries, written by brothers in the same infantry battalion, came to light in the Imperial War Museum. These combined diaries provide authentic contemporary material for a moving account of trench life between 1915 and 1918. Generously illustrated with photos, drawings and maps. UNCOMMON.
