This is the moving story of a brave, selfless and honourable man who endured everything the war could throw at him. Harry Lamin was born in 1877 and left school at thirteen to work in the lace industry, but by December 1916 he had been conscripted and eventually joined the 9th Battalion York and Lancaster Regiment and was sent to war. Harry's letters home to his family describe the conflict with a poignant immediacy, detailing everything from the action in battle to the often amusing incidents of life amongst his comrades. This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60 per cent of the author's work and as low as 30 per cent with characters and plotlines removed.

About the Author:

Bill Lamin was born in 1948 in the same East Midlands town as his grandfather, the subject of the book. He was educated at Nottingham High School, Welbeck College, the army's sixth form and the Royal Military Acadamy at Sandhurst. Before commissioning, Bill decided against a Military career and left to read Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London. He was employed as an aerospace engineer before converting to teaching, becoming Head of Computing at a Cornish Comprehensive school until the summer of 2008. Bill surfs, plays Sunday football (both to a modest standard) and plays the guitar, just about well enough to support a pub gig.

Review:

"I won't spoil the suspense of whether Harry survives to be reunited with his family. But as a chronicle of life for an ordinary foot soldier this is an excellent, easy read." Daily Express"
