This book contains a fictionalised account of the day-to-day experiences of soldiers in Kitchener's Army, the voluntary section of the British Army formed following the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. Although the characters are a work of fiction, the incidents described all actually occurred. The story was originally contributed in the form of an anonymous narrative to "Blackwood's Magazine". Contents include: "The Daily Grind", "Growing Pains", "The Conversion of Private M'Slattery", "Crime", "The Laws of the Medes and Persians", "Shooting Straight", "Billets", "Mid-Channel", "Deeds of Darkness", "Olympus", "... And Some Fell by the Wayside", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction.
