Description The First World War involved soldiers of different ranks as well as non-combatants. A range of these diaries are included in this collection. The diaries reveal what life was like for the average British soldier in the Battle of the Somme and later battles of Ypres. The battles of Loos, Arras, Vimy Ridge, and Bethune are also covered. The letters home will have been censored by the army, how much was removed depended on the censor. Tactical information and details of military training often remain as the main concern was morale. Soldiers' diaries are divided by rank. The 'others' diaries are from a chaplain and a civilian in occupied France.
