Description
Many chaplains were not permitted to go near the front in World War I; others insisted on doing so, like Kenneth Best in the disastrous Gallipoli campaign. Best had no military training before the war but he felt that he could only fulfill his pastoral role by working with the troops under fire. In his diary we follow his progress through his initial training in Egypt and on to his arrival in Gallipoli in May 1915, where some 480,000 Allied troops were inadvertently drawn into a land invasion in Turkey: "5th June 1915—Our poor boys behaved like heroes.... They went over trench after trench till they had a mere handful of men left.... Blood, flies and smell—I shall never forget it."
