A serious attempt to illustrate the humanity of the soldier on the Western Front, this title reflects World War I as they saw it: from first shot to last. These tales, told to fellow men in the trenches, behind the lines, at the base hospitals and at the estaminets and billets during rest periods, have been recorded here.
