This reissue, published to commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of World War I, provides many diverse impressions of what it was like to be a soldier on the Western front in the Great War and, primarily, what it meant to be a Welsh soldier. The prose and poetry collected here are from such famous names as Edward Thomas, Robert Graves, David Jones, and Saunders Lewis, and record not only horrific and dramatic events of combat—soldiers under artillery bombardment and the confusion of attacks or retreats—but also routine activities: the difficulties in repairing the trenches, the long waits for food, the blisters and the cold, and the comradeship in the Welsh regiments.
