Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A straightforward and blunt account of what he witnessed. T.K. was my Art teacher just before he retired. A plain-speaking, honest man who minces no words in this account of the War he took part in.
Using a dead man's stomach as a pillow, watching a shell remove a man's head without exploding while the body carries on walking, waking up to find an unexploded shell fired while he was asleep beside his head, his first impression of a tank. It's all in here, no holds barred. All the more unusual because T.K. was an extremely gifted artist, a talent passed on to his children who published this book in 1980 some years after his death.

As memoirs go of experiences of the Great War this is one of the clearer and more readable: not a literary masterpiece such as Robert Graves, but a clear, insightful account of events.
