Product Description

Despatch Rider on the Western Front 1915-1918 (Hardcover)

Sergeant Albert Simpkins Great War diary is of unusual scope and exceptional interest.

Albert was a First World War motorcycle despatch rider attached to the Headquarters of 7th Division throughout the war which he was so fortunate to survive. His wide ranging role enabled him to witness much more than his fellow men who were restricted to the trenches. One day he would be dogging shell holes and ammunition limbers to take his despatches to the front, the next commenting on the quaint but often courageous lives of the local populace.

As a result his diary entries, and some longer descriptions of the main actions of the war Division, provide a graphic record of the war on the Western Front.
Despatch Rider on the Western Front 1915-18 offers a unique opportunity for readers to immerse themselves in a well written and objective first-hand account of life and death on the Western Front.
