From the preface: In the 'Words of the Chief of the Italian General Staff, the war correspondent is the link between that part of the nation that fights and that part which is watching - " a noble and fertile mission, as great as any mission ever waged and necessary, too, for no army can long and reasonably march to victory if it has not the support and enthusiasm of the whole country behind it." As the accredited correspondent of the Daily Mail at the General Headquarters of Field-Marshal Sir John French, I have spent the greater part of the past six months with the British Army in Flanders. I have seen for myself the life and work of our army in the field. I have visted in person the trenches along practically our who e front. I have talked with our organizers of victory from the Commander­ in Chief downwards to the man in the saphead ten yards from the enemy. This book is the result. Chapters include:

The condition of the book is generally very poor, but is perfect as a reading copy or reference for study. The red cover boards have several scuffs and blemishes, and light wear and bumping along the edges and corners. There is water staining to the inside front covers and first and last 3 pages, and this includes some red blemishing where the colour of the cover boards has run. There is a name and inscription in pen on the first inside page (dated 1915!), and further annotations on the inside rear cover. The page opposite the title page has become three quarters detached from the binding. All other pages are intact and bound.
