Ashland, KY (PRWEB) November 14, 2012
The four years of the First World War, then known as the Great War, witnessed unprecedented levels of bloodshed and destruction. Amidst the international cataclysm, a young man embarked on his own odyssey, one that would let him carve his own name in history. Kenneth Brown Jr. shares his grandfather Edmund Brown’s wartime story in “My Diary of World War I”.
Edmund’s life would be irrevocably changed on April 7, 1915. He had made a trip to the artillery barracks in Bolton, Lancashire, to offer his services in the war and he was accepted. In his memoir, Edmund describes the daily grind and peril of his experiences during this unforgettable episode in his life- from the rigors of training to the numberless dangers that riddled his time in the service.
Edmund’s account does not attempt to glamorize the Great War; here readers will witness this historic event from the perspective of someone who has personally witnessed its horrors and its effects on the lives of millions of people. Ultimately, this diary unfurls to reveal a story of hope, patriotism and courage under fire.
Suffused with the First World War zeitgeist, “My Diary of World War I” more than just chronicles one man’s legacy, it gives voice to the thousands of people who devoted their lives to their country.
