Comments: An extraordinary collection of letters and subsequent postwar narrative of 9898 Gunner William John Duffell of the 1st Field Artillery Brigade. It describes the horrors of World War I trench warfare- the cold, the mud, the blood, the lack of sleep, the stench of death of man and beats, the violent noise and savage hand-to-hand fighting, the suffering and death from poison gas.and the happier moments, of days away from “the line”.
