Twenty seven stories of the men who fought the War of the Trenches There are many well known authors of the fiction of war who have relied upon their imaginations to create their fiction. Not so the less familiar author of this book, who reveals in his introduction that these tales not only concerned the actions of men on the front line, but that he-as one of them-wrote these riveting and immediate stories within the sound of the German guns.
His method was to take the often sparse and matter of fact nature of communiqus and officers' reports and paint in for his reader the vital back story that is the authentic personal experience of war with which he was so familiar. Those interested in the Great War will find much in these stories, based in part on fact and gathered from two volumes published during the First World War itself, to engage them. Available in soft cover and hard cover with dust jacket for collectors.
