TEMPORARY HEROES Lieutenant Norman Cecil Down

Lieutenant Norman Cecil Down  

RRP: £19.99
OUR PRICE: £2.99  

Full size hardback edition with 244 pages - this not to be missed book is offered at £2.99 against the 2014 published price of £19.99
This is a book based on the letters written between 1915 and 1916 by an officer serving with the 1/4th Gordon Highlanders. Second Lieutenant Down wrote regularly to his girlfriend/fiancee throughout his time in France, letters which were published in 1917 after he was wounded and discharged from the army. Cecil Down is a superb writer, but more than that he has a natural wit that translates easily to the page, making this a most enjoyable book on the Great War to read. It was chosen to put back in print because it is so different from anything else of this genre . Down captures life in France with great accuracy while remaining steadfastly upbeat and humorous. Nevertheless, there are moments when he is serious, and that makes his words poignant and attention-grabbing. Norman went to France in February 1915, serving continuously until July 1916. He died on 14 March 1984 aged 91.
