INTO BATTLE A Seventeen-Year-Old Joins Kitchener’s Army

RRP: £12.99
Summer Sale: £2.39

Great War recruiting sergeants were notorious for turning a blind eye to the real age of their youthful recruits. Ernest Parker was one such – joining up aged 17 in 1914, he ended the war an officer with a Military Cross for gallantry. His brief but revealing memoir, written soon after the war, was only found and published half a century later in 1964. In his introduction Great War historian John Terraine calls this little book ‘a minor classic’. It deserves that accolade.
