Publisher Description

Stanley Arthur Rutledge was a man of many parts: lawyer, beloved son, soldier, man of letters before his life was cut tragically short on the 16th November 1917. A member of the famed Canadian Corps, he left his home shore in 1915 and served courageously until dying in a flying accident whilst trained for the Royal Flying Corps.

This volume is divided into two parts: the first contains notes, anecdotes and experiences that the Author wrote whilst in the trenches through the battles of the Western Front, including the Somme. In them he describes the daily shelling, sniper fire, deadly poison gas, going over the top and even a sentry shooting one of his own officers who didn’t hear his challenge. The second part is made up of his letters home to his parents in Canada describing his experiences in the “Hippodrome of Hell” of the war. In spite of his audience, he pulled no punches in his retellings...

An excellent First World War Memoir.
