A typical month for a soldier of the First World War might comprise four days in the front line, four in support, eight in reserve and the remainder in rest, although longer spells at the front were not uncommon. This classic book, first published in 1978, was among the first to focus on the experience of ordinary soldiers, drawing on personal accounts to tell their story from enlisting to battle and its aftermath.
