The Great War: Fields Of Blood

Genre: Non Fiction

Book Summary

The Great War: Fields Of Blood relates strategies and action on the Western Front during the First World War and covers such major battles as the Battle of the Somme, the Battle of Verdun, the Battle of Mons and the Battle of Marne. It shows the courage and bravery of the men who laid down their lives for peace and whose memory will never be forgotten.
The heroes of mythology were but paltry figures compared with those who, in the Great War, went forward to the roaring devils of modern gunfire, dwelt amid high explosives more dreadful than dragons, breathed in the fumes of poison gas more foul than the breath of Medusa, watched and slept above mine craters which upheaved the hell-fire of Pluto and defied thunderbolts more certain in death-dealing blows than those of Jove.

About the Author

I live in the North of Scotland with my wife Tess, also an author. This is a beautifully scenic area from where I gain my inspiration. I have researched the First World War and written a number of books about this. In my book "Murder At Gallipoli" I have, in the last twenty or so pages, been very forthright with my views! I have just completed my first fictional short story about the antics of a General [General Bigsby] and his two friends during war-time which I have written in a purely conversational way.

My other interests include poetry, walking, fishing, painting and photography.
