A MUDDY TRENCH: A Sniper's Bullet - Hamish Mann, Black Watch, Officer-Poet, 1896-1917

A MUDDY TRENCH: A Sniper's Bullet - Hamish Mann, Black Watch, Officer-Poet, 1896-1917
by Buutriss, Jacquie

1-219540

The recent discovery of a wooden chest, unopened for 100 years, revealed a treasure trove of eloquent trench diaries, letters, and poetry. The author was Hamish Mann, a young Black Watch subaltern killed in France in 1917 just five days after his 21st birthday. Includes 32 black and white illustrations

Thanks to Mann's outstanding literary gifts and prodigious output, this book relives his fateful journey from the declaration of war, his voluntary work at a military hospital, his training and commission and, finally, his service with 8th Black Watch on the Somme. The daily hardship and trauma he experienced at the Front were shared with countless thousands of his comrades. But Hamish's extraordinary gift was his ability to record the traumatic events and the range of his emotions, writing often in his dugout 'by the light of a guttering candle.'
