The Wet Flanders Plain

£9.99

Product description

Henry Williamson's book stands alongside those works as a classic of the Great War. In 1928 Williamson revisited the battlefields of Flanders and Northern France in the company of a fellow veteran. He wanted to 'return to my old comrades. to the brown, the treeless, the flat and grave-set plain of Flanders - to the rolling, heat-miraged downlands of the Somme - for I am dead with them, and they live in me again.' He hoped to rid himself of the 'wraiths' of the war. Whether or not he succeeded, he produced an unforgettable testament. 'The Wet Flanders Plain emerges from the mass of War books as the most beautiful and the most terrible.' Paperback, good read condition. 1987 edition, slight signs of wear to cover and page edges, binding tight, pages clean and unmarked.
