DESCRIPTION: These are the memoirs of one infantryman, but he provides a vivid account that paints a broad picture of the war on the Western Front. This is also the story of an idealistic and patriotic 17 year old who, against all the odds, survives the trench warfare, maintains his patriotism but develops realism. Well written and entertaining as well as moving and terrifying. A very worthwhile account from someone who was there.

This is primary source material and valuable for that. It is also a very personal account that takes the reader through the experiences that developed the character of a young man at war. This is not just a war story, but a unique comparison between the beauty of the French countryside with the lunar landscape of the mud and blood of trench war.
