Comments: The detailed history of the 10th Field Ambulance during World War 1.

“What did you do in the war grandpa?”

This was not a question to which many people got a satisfactory answer, such answers were often too painful to give. For those that did ask, many did not have the life-experience to understand the answers.

This book takes another step to filling in their story.

This is the history of a field ambulance unit in WWI, it is presented through the diaries of the two principle participants — the officers and the soldiers — each left their own stories.

To hear the soldier’s voice the available letters and diaries have been used. The author’s own grandfather kept a detailed diary of his army life from embarkation and passage to England, through service in France to his being bomb-fodder on the eve of the 1918 liberation of Villers-Brettoneaux, his rehabilitation in England and eventual return home.

The officers wrote an Official War Diary each day, as well as some who left post-War reflections.

The Official War Diary and the soldier’s diary are each transcribed and presented in a day-to-day comparison. This allows for each to comment on their own experience and for us to listen to what each felt were the most important bits to pass on. 

Perhaps a new generation can begin to listen, even though these soldiers can no longer speak for themselves.
