This is a short book of reminiscences of a soldier's time on the Western Front in world war II. The author speaks proudly of the prowess of the Australian battalions, tells a few stories of he and his mate Bluey up to no good on leave and gives some of the most graphic descriptions of the foot-soldier's experience that I have read; you feel the sheer weariness, the cold, the hunger, the physical discomfort that never seems to end and you glimpse the joy of slaughter.
