In The Firing Line: Stories Of The War By Land And Sea

Length: 95 pages2 hours


Arthur St. John Adcock was a novelist and poet of great repute in the early decades of the twentieth century. A noted journalist on Fleet Street, his great experience and literary acumen were ideal qualifications to produce this anthology volume of war stories from the frontlines of the First World War. Weaving the letters, diaries and reminiscences of the eye-witnesses, soldiers and officers who fought during the opening months of the war, he covers the battles around Mons, the destruction of Louvain, the fighting at Ypres and the first battle of the Marne and naval engagements in the North Sea.
Well worth a read.
