A Dirty Swindle: True Stories of Scots in the Great War (Paperback)Walter Stephen (author)
- In stock online
Walter Stephen provides an uninhibited look at the misery
and toil of World War I through a collection of twelve stories.
Providing a Scottish perspective, he takes a look at reports
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 revealing a side of Field Marshal Haig never seen before.
