    The journal kept by Lieutenant-Colonel AD Reid before he was killed at the Battle of Passchendaele in 1917 was not a personal record of trench life; reflecting on his predicament through creative prose, poems and soldier's songs, it aspired to a higher literary standard and a wider audience. Drawing on these unusual writings, this book explores the life of this career soldier and his brother, also an officer on the Western Front.
