Griffith, Wyn.


Gliddon Books, Norwich, new ed., 1988. 260 pp. D.j., 20 x 13cm. A touch of fading to the spine of d.j., o/w Nr.FINE. At the outbreak of the Great War the author joined the Army as a Private and was commissioned soon after with the 15th Royal Welch Fusiliers. He served throughout the war and latterly on the Staff. It was his experiences during the 38th (Welsh) Division’s heroic attempts to capture Mametz Wood in July 1916 which provided the germ for this book. The author’s younger brother was killed in the attack on Mametz Wood and here he gives "one of the most vivid and moving accounts ever written of the terrible experiences of war."
