The First Hundred Thousand is John Hay Beith's humorous memoir of military training and life in the trenches as part of the first hundred thousand volunteers in Lord Kitchener's New Army during the First World War.
Compiled from pieces written for Blackwood's Magazine, Beith's memoir was a bestseller in the then-neutral United States as well as in Britain and, following the "Battle of the Slap-Heaps" (Loos), Beith went to work at the information branch of the British War Mission in Washington, supplying war news to the American press.
