Written from the perspective of an ordinary 'Tommy', this book is a testament to the human spirit, for out of the mud that threatened to suck out a man's soul rises a compelling story of humanity and friendship.

'It's the end of the 1916 winter and the conditions are almost unbelievable. We live in a world of Somme mud. We sleep in it, work in it, fight in it, wade in it and many of us die in it. We see it, feel it, eat it and curse it, but we can't escape it, not even by dying...'. Edward Lynch enlisted when he was just 18 - one of thousands of fresh-faced men who were proudly waved off by the crowds as they embarked for France. It was 1916 and the majority had no idea of the reality of the Somme trenches, of the traumatised soldiers they would encounter there, of the innumerable, awful contradictions of war.Private Lynch was one of those who survived, and on his return home in 1919, wrote "Somme Mud" in pencil in over 20 school exercise books, perhaps in the hope of coming to terms with all that he had witnessed there. Written from the perspective of an ordinary 'Tommy' and told with dignity, candour and surprising wit, "Somme Mud" is a testament to the human spirit, for out of the mud that threatened to suck out a man's soul rises a compelling story of humanity and friendship. It is a rare and precious find.

Heat & rep added, for finding an amazing &, at times, very moving book, with a real insight on the true horrors some of these soldiers went through...

Good find, as an alternative this is £3.86 at Tesco online but you have to pay £2.74(!) P&P if you're spending less than £15. Free P&P above £15 makes it worth considering tho :thumbsup:

This book is unbelievably good. Bought it randomly in Tesco one night, (along with another book so they would have been £3.50 each I think), and I couldn't put it down. Hot from me.
