About this product
- DescriptionThe year was 1916 and the majority had no idea of the reality of the trenches of the Somme, of the pale faced, traumatised soldiers they would encounter there, of the innumerable, awful contradictions of war. Private Lynch was one of those who survived his time in the trenches. Upon his return from France in 1919 he wrote this book.
- Author BiographyEdward Lynch was born in 1898 and after serving in France with the 45th Battalion of the First Australian Imperial Force from 1916-19, he returned to Australia and became a teacher.
