[SR: 3018707], Gebundene Ausgabe, [EAN: 9781848841543], Pen & Sword Books (Ncr), Pen & Sword Books (Ncr), Book, [PU: Pen & Sword Books (Ncr)], Pen & Sword Books (Ncr), Alfred Burrage's War is War is his sincere and successful attempt to record his experiences as a private soldier in France during the First World War, his reactions to abnormal conditions and his observations. Written in the 1920s he wanted the curious to know what war was really like. Burrage realised that nearly all such memoirs were written by ex-officers who inevitably saw the war from a different view point to Tommy Atkins - as he put it, the officers 'were only with us, not of us, and they cannot get inside our skins.'In this account, written of necessity under a pseudonym, he covers the wide canvas of war, from off duty moments in grubby estaminets and brothels, to life in shell torn trenches, going over the top with equally terrified yet resigned comrades, being a casualty, to periods of numbing boredom.War is War is superbly crafted and phrased and will be revelation to even the most informed student of The Great War. Private X writes with complete honesty and avoids sentimentality. How fortunate that he at least survived his ordeal to share with us nearly 100 years later his thoughts, fears and experiences.Educated at Douai School, Alfred McLelland Burrage earned his living writing short stories for the many magazines and periodicals of the period. After his war in the Artist's Rifles, he enjoyed considerable success as a literary figure, until fashions changed and short stories were killed off by the Second World War.

WAR IS WARBy Ex-Private X - gebunden oder broschiert

ISBN: 184884154X

ID: 21207643093

[EAN: 9781848841543], [SC: 6.95], HB, 228 ppPublished Price £19.99 Ex-Private X is the pseudonym of Alfred McClelland Burrage , author, who served with 1/28th London Regiment (Artists Rifles), 190th Brigade, 63rd (RN) Division. Since the end of 1914 the battalion had acted as an Officers Training Corps and out of 15000 who served in the battalion 10250 were commissioned. Private X was an unsuccessful candidate. He joined his unit at Hesdin in early 1917 where it formed part of GHQ Troops, but from the summer of 1917 potential officers were trained in the UK and 1/28th became an ordinary infantry battalion. His front line service began in July 1917 when the battalion joined the 63rd Division which was then occupying the Oppy and Gavrelle sectors; in October it moved north to the salient where Third Ypres was in full swing. There are graphic descriptions of the conditions and the fighting during the attack on Passchendaele alongside the Canadians on 30th October which cost the battalion 350 casualties. Two months later there was more fierce fighting at Welch Ridge following the German successful counter-attack at Cambrai battle and again in the early days of the German March offensive But his gift with the pen also resulted in attacks, at times vitriolic, on troops behind the lines, especially the Military Police, the staff and the generals. Nor did he care for the Australians. To quote one example from the book, in which he is referring to the military police, he writes: ÒThe military police were a nice crowd, too. The only good word I have to say for the Australians is that they killed a lot of these swine; but they didnÕt kill half enough.Ó The New Zealanders on the other hand he really liked and admired. His war ended on 7th April when he was sent back suffering with trench feet and was invalided home. While waiting in hospital he spoke to a Warrant Officer asking him if he could get him marked for England. ÒI can,Ó the WO replied, Òand that will cost you two pounds.Ó Unfortunately Burrage didnÕt have it, so he had to wait on - till 14th April when he started his journey home.
