Listen in app
"The Diary of a Dead Officer" paints a picture critical of everyday army life, shows us the moral and psychological struggles of soldiers during World War 1 and is said to be one of the most vivid accounts of daily life in the trenches. The book is composed of diverse diary entries of Arthur Graeme West, British writer and war poet, killed by a sniper in 1917. The book gives voice to one officer's struggle to come to terms with the realities of war and is a poignant tribute to a lost generation of soldiers at war.
