Summary
Like many men of his generation Harry Drinkwater rushed to volunteer for King and country when war was declared in 1914. He joined a regiment of the Birmingham Pals and soon found himself marching through northern France en route to the trenches of the Somme. Unusually though, Harry kept a secret diary of his experiences throughout the war, despite it being illegal for him to do so. 100 years later Harry's words and experiences leap off the page with incredible immediacy and power
