    When Edwin Campion Vaughan set out for France, carrying Palgrave's Golden Treasury of poetry in his pack, he was an enthusiastic and patriotic young officer looking forward to adventure. This searingly honest and revealing diary traces his changing perspectives, evoking the day-to-day minutiae of trench warfare, and growing in horror and disillusionment as Vaughan's company - his 'happy little band' - is drawn into the carnage of Passchendaele.
