Synopsis: Despite a public school and university education, William Price felt that his debilitating stutter prohibited him from becoming an officer and he enlisted as a gunner in the Royal Field Artillery in 1914. This thoughtful memoir, written in 1958 but based on his own contemporary diary, reveals the everyday comradeship of the men, conditions at the front and the progress of the war from the soldiers' point of view, including the battles of the Somme and Passchendaele.

Book Description The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Gunner of the Somme is a remarkable memoir detailing the life of a gunner on the Western Front as observed by a gentleman scientist who served in the ranks.William Price was a Cambridge botanist who worked at Kew Gardens but a speech impediment made him feel unable to serve as an officer. He enrolled in the ranks and left this incredible description of how the brigade operated, how men worked on the guns and his experiences as a gunner.His account runs from the outbreak of war until he was wounded in late 1917, and there is a moving postscript written in 1958 when he returned to the battlefields around Ypres. In addition to his descriptions of the fighting at the Somme and Passchendaele, he includes fine detail - such as food and swearing in the ranks - that is hard to find elsewhere.
