First-hand accounts of major events are important on many fronts, not the least of which is to have an accurate eye-witness account that benefits historical accuracy. Bearing in mind that history is written by the victors, this marvellous diary is a remarkable recording of events as experienced by one man fighting on one side of an epic war in which his side were victorious. Fired up with high-spirited idealism, the soldier (he's actually a lieutenant) recounts how he and his comrades were prepared to do just about anything to defeat the enemy and secure a victory not just for his country and its allies but for the cause and principle of justice itself, perhaps the noblest cause of all. With God and justice on his side, he enters the fray with an almost unflappable sense of righteousness and commendable lack of fear for his own personal safety. Throughout the course of the war (where he gets into battle situations that would perhaps paralyze most people with fear and foreboding), he is granted several medals of honor for his bravery and courage. We are blessed that he had paper and pen always on hand and the good sense to put them to good use. ( )
