‘When the autumn rains came, liquid mud ruled our days.’ Donald Dean’s stirring memoirs recount his time in the First World War trenches at Ypres, Passchendaele and Lens, after which he was awarded the Victoria Cross for doggedly defending a captured German trench. Promoted to colonel in the Second World War, he was one of the last to leave Boulogne in 1940, a story told with clarity and unfailing modesty.
