Description
 
Michael Brander (ed). Using little known diaries of soldiers serving in Europe & as far afield as India, from the 18th century to the World War I, Michael Brander has shown the effects of war on the men themselves, in their own words. All young when they wrote their diaries, despite differences in war, in weapons, in rank, in drill & dress, despite even the vast differences in climate, continents & centuries, there is a timelessness about them. Their attitudes to officers, to civilians, to going into action, to being wounded, to disease, to looting & other day-to-day activities of army life in action, show an interesting similarity defying time or place.
