Though he was the obvious choice for Commander-in-Chief at the time, French was fighting a 20th century war with a 19th century mindset. Images of him at the time portray him mounted on horseback, a billowing feather in his hat… meanwhile the tanks and tear gas are just over the horizon.< Less

This is a sort of autobiography of my (Douglas Harry Butler) view of the Great War. I suppose I should call it: ‘Interlude 1914-19’. Here has been recorded one man's view of the period,... More > September 1914 to March 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.

Included also are many prayer poems for all serving soldiers past and present plus many more for the desire of World peace.< Less
