They perished slowly- very slowly. After many hours, there was nothing but whimpering from a few men- they went to sleep one after the other, never to wake again.”Anyone who survived the inhumanity of the trenches of the Great War was scarred for the rest of his life. Mankind’s highest ideals were trodden into the filth in a war in which every base instinct, every aggressive emotion that could be summoned, was necessary to stay alive for just one more day, one more hour.And yet, there was more that united the fighting soldiers on all sides than separated them.

The contempt for many of the officers, for example, who “… kept themselves alive for the fatherland”, as the unknown author scathingly remarks.This unsparing description of trench warfare is a voice from an era long past reaching to future generations- in it’s detail of the terrors lies the hope that such insanity would not be repeated.

The book is also a question mark thrown up by the frontline soldier- for whom was this war really fought? In the light of current discussion, a question that urgently needs an answer.
