An Infant in Arms War Letters Of A Company Officer 1914-1918


A classic Great War memoir of a public school boy who joined up in 1914 and served throughout the war with the Ox and Bucks L.I., emerging in 1918 as a Captain and company commander on the Italian front. Based on letters to the author’s mother, this book describes the Somme and Passchendaele, but Greenwell looks back on the war as the happiest years of his life.
