In 1930, the editor of Everyman Magazine requested entries for a new collection of Great war accounts. The result was an extraordinary volume.
It was the very first collection to reveal the war through the eyes of the ordinary soldier, and offers heart-stopping renditions of the earliest gas attack, aerial dogfights above the trenches, the moment of 'going over the top'. Here are the opening scrambles of 1914, the drudgery of the war of attrition once the trenches had been dug, and the final joy of Armistice.
