More > 1919. It is not literature; it was written line by line as memory carried me back to those extraordinary days, with regular pauses of days and months. I wanted to put down on paper the things I saw and endured and enjoyed, and the thoughts that passed through my mind as, day by day, time moved along its endless groove of boredom, terror, discomfort and good fellowship.
