This a gripping, first hand account of a young soldier's experiences in France and Belgium during the First World War.
'In that hour was born in me a fear that lasted throughout the whole winter. It was the dread of dying in the mud, going down in that stinking morass and though dead being conscious throughout the ages. Waves of fear at times threatened to overwhelm me... a little weakness, a little slackening of control at times and I might have gone over the borderline.
In the light of the sun, on firm ground, I could laugh at fate. But where the churned mud half hid and half revealed bodies, where dead hands reached out of the morass, seeming to implore aid - there I had to hold tight.'
In this gripping account, George Deane Mitchell relives the horror and the humour of being an Australian soldier on the Western Front in World War I.
