Often produced in hazardous conditions, at one point only 700 yards from the front line, it acted as the voice of the average British soldier, relaying his experiences, grief, and anger during the entire conflict. At times irreverent, at times hysterical, its humor and satire provide an excellent insight into life in the trenches in the First World War. Softcover. Published by Max Press 2008. Weight 657g
