This book takes an unusual approach to recording the service of two NZ soldiers in the First World War. Based on the diaries of the two soldiers, the author has cleverly mixed extracts from the diaries and letters of the two infantrymen as they served on the Western Front from 1916 – 1919.
Told with grim reality, the book is a valuable personal account of the horrors of trench warfare.
