About the Author
Educated at Douai School, Alfred McLelland Burrage earned his living writing short stories for the many magazines and periodicals of the period. After his war in the Artist's Rifles, he enjoyed considerable success as a literary figure, until fashions changed and short stories were killed off by the Second World War. He died soon after. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

At times sarcastic, he gives the impression that certain members of the officers mess were quite useless and only got where they were from their social standing in life while the nco's at the bases were nothing but bullies and cowards.
It must be remembered that Burrage wrote this book some years after the end of the war as a riposte to the many officers memoirs that were published at the time. As someone who was overlooked for a commission he may have an axe to grind but for me it is one of the best books written about life on the Western Front in a war zone and a must read for anybody who wants to understand the experience of the "Poor Bloody Infantry."
