The story is told by a young 'unknown soldier' in the trenches of Flanders during the First World War. Through his eyes we see all the realities of war; under fire, on patrol, waiting in the trenches, at home on leave, and in hospitals and dressing stations.

It's the same formula to many war stories, a kid headed off to war too young and slowly numbed by the horrors of the front, but somehow this is still so enthralling. It's the earnest voice and the internal battle of the protagonist, half depreciating the infectious camaraderie of war, the other half questioning why they would ever happen.
