... [Not] an official history of the Great War [i.e. World War I] ... merely a record of some of the personal experiences of a typical regiment of Kitchener's Army. The chapters were written from day to day, and published from month to month ... The characters are entirely fictitious, but the incidents described all actually occurred."--Note, p. [xii].
