Among the thousands of men who suffered in the trenches during World War I, some did not even have the protection of a weapon. Members of the Royal Army Medical Corps were there not to take lives, but to save them. Many chose this difficult and dangerous work because of their principles ? including volunteer Charles Horton, who went through the horrors of Passchendaele, Ypres and the Somme, fighting to get the injured away from the guns, to the safety of the field hospitals and beyond. In 1970, Horton wrote down his memories. This is a wonderful authentic account of one man?s struggle to survive ? and to keep others alive. With the approval of Horton?s family, author Dale le Vack has edited Horton?s journals for clarity, and added more text to provide background. The result is a superb memoir of one of the darkest periods in history.
