Product description

This is the moving story of a brave, selfless and honourable man who endured everything the war could throw at him. Harry Lamin was born in 1877 and left school at thirteen to work in the lace industry, but by December 1916 he had been conscripted and eventually joined the 9th Battalion York and Lancaster Regiment and was sent to war. Harry's letters home to his family describe the conflict with a poignant immediacy, detailing everything from the action in battle to the often amusing incidents of life amongst his comrades. This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60 per cent of the author's work and as low as 30 per cent with characters and plotlines removed.

Review quote

"I won't spoil the suspense of whether Harry survives to be reunited with his family. But as a chronicle of life for an ordinary foot soldier this is an excellent, easy read." Daily Express"
