A Yankee in the Trenches

ByR. Derby Holmes

It is a little known fact that before the United States entered the first World War there were a number of Americans who joined the British Army to fight. R. Derby Holmes was one of these Americans whose experiences in this fascinating book gives us tremendous insight into an outsiders view of the British soldiers character and the British Army. It is nearing the centenary of the beginning of what was known as the Great War. For many people it represents a long forgotten conflict with no relevance to the 21st Century, however the modern world was made on the fields of Flanders and beyond between 1914 - 1918. The Kean Guides World War 1 series tells of the personal cost of this conflict , by republishing dairies, recollections and observations our aim is to educate and encourage study of this War to keep alive the memories of those who went through the hell and survived ,and for the many who sacrificed their lives.
