This is a most unusual chronicle of the events of one man during the Great War. A professional soldier at the outbreak, Edward Roe was one of the first to cross over to France in 1914 and as such fought in the early battles of the war and took part in the Retreat from Mons. He was there for the crossing of the Marne and Aisne, the dreadful fighting at Ploegsteert and for the extraordinary. This is a most unusual chronicle of the events of one man during the Great War.

The Diary of an Old Contemptible - new book

ISBN: 9781844151356

ID: 121366443

Private Edward Roe receives his call up to the so called Great War on 5 August 1914, little realising that the clock of Christianity has just started ticking backwards; marking the beginning of his ´Hells Bells´ diaries of daily life on the front line. His prose is a combination of close proximity machine-gun fire and distant, often misplaced, artillery bombardment; from doing nothing one day he is caught between crossfire the next. Shot in Ypres and later wounded again in Mesopotamia, Roe chillingly recalls the ´heroic dead´ strewn across battlefields; where he carries not just weapons and rations, but a ticket of his own in this lottery of death. Between mouthfuls of bully-beef and biscuits there is a reminder of Christmas 1914, in the trenches, when war-worn men downed tools and took to No Man´s Land only for peace to be destroyed by another outburst of paranoia.
