This is a deeply personal book and has clearly taken some guts to write... Moore has achieved something that even the best history books cannot manage; he has shown that WWI is still relevant to everyone, and will continue to be so. ( FOCUS)
Christopher Moore has a fixation on the First World War--an obsession that can be defined as "trench fever". His mission to record the life of an unsung hero of the 1914 to 1918 conflict leads him to dog every step taken by the Fifth Leicesters regiment, ( AMAZON.CO.UK)
For Chris Moore, the Great War has developed from a childhood fascination to a full-blown obsession, both for the actuality, of the war - its archives and its archaeology - as well as its abiding influence on English language, manners and customs.
Exasperated with the emphasis most war literature places on the officers, generals and political leaders, Chris Moore decided to trace the war-time experiences of one man, one personal history among the six million voiceless ranks of Britons in uniform. He chose Private Walter Butterworth, Fifth Battalion, the Leicestershire Regiment, an obscure infantryman in a disparaged outfit of amateurs that somehow managed to win one of the greatest battles of history - who also happened to be Chris Moore's grandfather.
In TRENCH FEVER, Chris Moore retrieves his grandfather's war-song by following (with reluctant family in tow) the three year march of the Fifth Leicesters through France and Flanders.
