Dick Read (1895-1971) joined the Leicestershire Regiment as a Private at the outbreak of the First World War and made it through to the end, by which time he held a commission and had been awarded the Croix de Guerre. Written in the 1960s and first published in the 1990s, this thoughtful and detailed memoir charts the author's experiences at the battles of the Somme and the Marne, in Egypt and back in Flanders for the Final Advance in 1918.
