Description
Cameras were strictly forbidden by the War Office, and yet the 1st Cameronians—one of the first battalions sent to France with the British Expeditionary Force—achieved notoriety for selling the Great War's earliest frontline photographs. As a 25-year-old medical officer and one of the first doctors to win the Military Cross, Fred Davidson took countless photographs while serving in the trenches in 1914–15, and here former Sunday Times columnist Andrew Davidson (Fred's grandson) assembles 250 surviving photographs into a fascinating and highly individual visual account of the everyday lives of soldiers in the early part of the war.

"A deeply affecting account of men struggling to keep hold of their sanity amid a ceaseless round of daily horrors."—Daily Mail (London)
