Over There - War Scenes on the Western Front

114 pages1 hour


This vintage book contains Arnold Bennett’s 1915 account of life on the French and Belgian fronts during the First World War. It is his personal account of a visit to several portions of the French and Belgian fronts during the war, wherein he describes the destruction and conditions of the troops. Bennett has the ability to describe the most horrible scenes in language that is truly poetic, and does so with an authenticity missing from much of the propaganda of the time. A fascinating read, this book is highly recommended for those with an interest in the First World War, and it is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Bennett’s work. Enoch Arnold Bennett (1867 –1931) was a popular English writer. He became famous as an author, but also worked as a journalist, propagandist, and film producer. Many antiquarian books such as this are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
