PLATOON An Infantryman on the Western Front 1916-18

£19.99 £3.99

Joseph Johns Steward fought in the Great War, from the Battle of the Somme to the final offensives of 1918, he was an acute, unflinching observer of the conflict he took part in – of life and death on the Western Front. He recorded his experiences in accurate detail and later in life he wrote a graphic semi-fictionalized account of his wartime career, his comrades and his platoon. His narrative is published here for the first time, edited, annotated and with an introduction by Andrew Robertshaw and Steve Roberts.
