A Dirty Swindle : True Stories of Scots in the Great War, Hardback Book

A Dirty Swindle : True Stories of Scots in the Great War Hardback


Walter Stephen provides an uninhibited look at the misery and toil of World War I through a collection of twelve diverse stories.

Providing a Scottish perspective, he takes a look at tales from home and abroad with scepticism, delving deeper to unveil the unencumbered truth.

Recalling Siegfried Sassoon's words, Stephen reveals the failures of those in command as the Great War became known as A Dirty Swindle.

The varied accounts chronicle the progress of troops from recruitment to training to the frontline, as well as enlightening historians to a side of Field Marshal Haig never seen before.
