9780316646963: Trench Fever

For Chris Moore the Great War developed from a childhood fascination to a full-blown obsession, both with the actuality of the war - its archives and its archaeology - and its abiding influence on English language, manners and customs. Exasperated with the emphasis most war literature places on the officers and political leaders, Moore set out to trace the wartime experiences of one man - one personal history among the 6,000,000 voiceless ranks of Britons in uniform. He chose Private Walter Butterworth, 5th Battalion, 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 Moore's grandfather. In this book Moore retrieves his grandfather's war-song by following (with reluctant family in tow) the three-year march of the 5th Leicesters through France and Flanders.

About the Author:

Chris Moore works for the BBC World Service. He lives in London.

Review:

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
