Paperback: $8.50

Rescued from a tatty scrapbook, my grandfather’s WW1 memoirs give an “underview” of the war rather than the frequently described overviews of Front-line battles. Private Bassett was... More > placed in the transport section of his battalion, which involved mainly the horse-drawn delivery of all army supplies. Thus fortuitously, he was spared serving in the trenches at the Front.
