Click to preview Wal's War pocket and trade book

Walter Edward Young was a quiet and unassuming man, born in Islington, London in 1889. These memoirs were discovered long after his death in 1957. His words provide a very simple, yet graphic account of the dangers and misery of life in the trenches during the First World War, with little mention of his own personal fears and angst. The fact that he survived, despite being shot and captured, when so many of his fellow Post Office Rifles and men serving alongside him became casualties, seems little short of a miracle. His story here is testament to his resilience and humility in what must have been unbearable conditions. Contains copies of original documentation, letters written to and from the front, and lots of photos. Softcover and Hardcover with dust jacket are printed in B&W; Hardcover with Image wrap - images are printed in colour
