Schoolboy into war
Book 2: the Autobiography
by H.E.L. Mellersh

This was written when the author was approaching eighty years of age. He fought on the Western front, was wounded three times and ended up catching Spanish flu. By the time he reached eighty, he had absorbed and reconciled himself to the war experiences and had lived through the terrible disappointment of another world war.

This is a mature view of the war. It is surprisingly forgiving of the mistakes made by the politicians and generals. But H E L Mellersh still retains the hope that we should understand the reality of the experience of war and learn from it. Only by understanding war can we hope to avoid it. This book will add much to your understanding of the First World War.
