Meet at Dawn, Unarmed by Andrew Hamilton & Alan Reed, Inscribed

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

On August 5th 1914, Robert Hamilton left his young family behind in Devon to start a momentous six month journey through France and Belgium with the 1st Battalion of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment.

In his diary, he recorded his experiences on the Front Line.

Extracts from his wife's diary highlight the fears and anxieties of loved ones awaiting news from the Front.

After he left the Western Front in 1915, his diary chronicles the 'battles' he fought with Conscientious Objectors and 'Red Tape' as Commandant of the Hereford Military Detention Barracks.

Robert's grandson Andrew Hamilton and Great War enthusiast Alan Reed have complemented the diaries with an informative commentary. They have used a wide range of contemporary evidence, including the cartoons of Robert's famous friend Bruce Bairnsfather, and a variety of original photographs. They have also reenacted important episodes of his life, including a fascinating reconstruction of the Christmas Truce between the Warwicks and the Saxons in No Man's Land.

This copy is inscribed and signed by both authors. There are bumps to the corners of the cover but the overall condition is very good.
