Diaries of a Stretcher-BearerDon Munro
Diaries of a Stretcher-Bearer is a daily account of the heroism of the stretcher-bearers during WWI. These men walked out into no man's land, picked up the wounded and dying and struggled back to their own trenches through the Somme mud under fire from German snipers.
The diaries document romance and tragedy of war. Throughout the book the author tries to find the lighter side of war. Contrasting the horror of war are stories of army idiocy and the camaraderie of true mateship. Diaries of a Stretcher-Bearer is a book that reveals both the best and worst of human nature. 250 pages.
