Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Destined to be a star amongst memoirs of simple soldiers of the front line, Harry's War will astonish, chill, enrich and educate the mind of every reader; the text and paintings were not discovered until after his death. Harry volunteered for war and was, and had no desire to be a hero, but his daily battle duties entailed remarkable nerve and bravery. Not only did he volunteer for war, he chose to be trained as a 'bomber' and, by so doing, joined the 'suicide club' so termed because of the minimal life expectancy of those in the unit. The task was straightforward - train to hurl grenades at the enemy whilst they shot and threw grenades back at you. This was close-up war, you really could see the whites of your opponent's eyes! Harry survived the war, just; an arm injury ensured that he was in England when it ended.

The modest style of his story denotes a man doing his duty for his country without question or complaint; his paintings are full of character but are also basic and naïve, though all the more pertinent for that. Harry's War is destined to be relived by a new generation!

Harry's story lay untouched until his death in the 1960s. The original notebooks have been edited by Virginia Mayo, a published author and relative of Harry
