Arthur Guy Empey was an American who responded to the sinking of the Lusitania by enlisting with the British Army to fight in France. His experiences in the trenches, including his ultimate wounding and convalescence, became this book. When published in 1917, it was a major hit and helped the recruiting effort when America entered the Great War.If you’ve heard of the horror of trench warfare in WWI and want to see it from below dirt level, Empey offers it all here.Also included is Empey’s popular “Tommy’s Dictionary of the Trenches” which humorously demistifies the slang used by the British soldier.
love it love it
this book is a wonderful book weather you are intrested in WW1 or not
Very Good. Except. Ibelive it is watered down with regard to training, etc.. This to not put off the 'Yanks' the he is trying to atract to the Allied cause.
Very well read, indeed! I enjoyed listening to it a lot.
A must read if WWI is one of your interests.
A fascinating and at times harrowing account of one American's experience as a First World War Tommy. An incredible illustration of social history.
