Tommy Goes to War

'The fury, fear, mud, blood, boredom and bravery that made up life on the Western Front are vividly presented and illustrated.' - The Sunday Telegraph

'Shows the changing mood of the infantrymen and their relatives from the euphoria of 1914 to the growing bitterness and disillusionment of the succeeding war years' - The Times

'Captures and conveys the generously naive spirit of the menfolk's o 1914-18' - BBC History Magazine

'I am delighted that this important book is being made available again; it deserves a fresh audience.' - Gary Sheffield

Tommy Goes to War is a classic pioneering work of First World War history, presenting a fascinating account of the life the British soldier on the Western Front. Based on carefully chosen extracts from the unpublished letters, diaries and oral testimony of dozens of ordinary soldiers, it presents a vivid, detailed portrait of soldiers' experiences from enlistment through front-line service to demobilisation.
