Massacre of the Innocents : The Crofton Diaries, Ypres 1914-1915 Paperback
by Gavin Roynon
Approaching World War I as an adventure with the high spirits of many of his age and background, Sir Morgan Crofton soon discovered the combination of terror and tedium afforded by static warfare in the machine-gun age.
His diary describes the bewildering pace of technological change as new weapons like gas and hand grenades entered the fray.
