A tweet from Twitterverse: 


Today in 1917 Alexander Waugh wrote this extraordinary letter before going over the top on the W Front

He was wrong. It wasn't his last. He survived after days pinned down in No Man's Land & managed to write home again. That was his last. He was killed days later on 1 Dec 1917.


A tweet from Twitterverse: 

I am lucky and privileged I have not experienced war first hand in my lifetime.

This captures its atrocities, great novels capture its atrocities, and the tears of my dad capture it, when he tells the stories about what he experienced as a kid in Arnhem September 44.
