Academic Christina Keith took up a position as a lecturer to the troops in France in 1918 and as soon as hostilities ended, she travelled into the front-line areas, visiting places such as Cambrai, Thiepval and Arras. It was highly unusual for an intellectual woman to be in the war zone, and her memoir provides a unique perspective on life behind the lines and on the devastated forward areas at the end of the war.
