I would be inclined to include Somme Mud on a compulsory reading list for WWI, which may be partly my Aussie bias speaking, but I think it is a fascinating view of everyday life in the war, and a tribute to the men who went through it: those who died and those who survived.

Somme Mud, real diary of an Australian infantryman serving in the trenches in World War I, is one such book. And harrowing it is: the descriptions of the relentless deaths and injuries are often graphic, though never indulgent.

The sheer senselessness and, to a certain extent, gory tedium and monotony of the war bear down on the reader page after page. That men — some who were little more than boys — could cope with this terrible situation is nothing short of astonishing. There are acts of heroism, moments of incredible luck and even some really quite funny situations.


And of course there are accounts of violence, brutality and killing that turn the stomach — and, in the middle of it all, some genuinely moving acts of kindness, even towards the enemy. I can totally understand many readers not having the stomach to read a book like this — but it deserves to be read, to keep alive the reality of a war that distinguishes itself in history by the sheer expendability of human life.

If you expect a journey through the politics and tactics of the war this is not what you are gonna get with this book. Although This is not a diary, it pretty much reads as the diary of a man, that like many others went trough an extraordinary experience of relentless Web Services Goodreads Shopbop.

Lynch's account is so detailed as to preclude post action remembrance.

At a time when there are too many politicians making at times self serving speeches about the horror of that War it is powerful stuff to hear a voice from the grave who was there in the mud. Told with dignity, candour and surprising wit, it is a testament to the power of the human spirit, a moving true story of humanity and friendship.
