The Great War: Fields Of Blood

By David Wilson

General non-fiction | Paperback, eBook


The Great War: Fields Of Blood relates strategies and action on the Western Front during the First World War and covers such major battles as The Battle of The Somme, The Battle of Verdun, The Battle of Mons and The Battle of Marne. The heroes of mythology were but paltry figures compared with those who, in The Great War, went forward to the roaring devils of modern gun-fire, dwelt amidst high explosives more dreadful than dragons, breathed in the fumes of poison-gas more foul than the breath of Medusa, watched and slept above mine-craters which upheaved the hell-fire of Pluto and defied thunderbolts more certain in death dealing blows than those of Jove.



I live in the North of Scotland with my wife, Tess, amongst beautiful scenery which gives me inspiration to write. Here the deer and rabbits wander into the garden and the buzzards sit on the fence posts waiting for their prey. My hobbies include poetry, fishing the hill lochs, photography, landscape painting and walking. As it was the centenary of the end of The First World War last year I researched this and wrote four books. I have also composed a book of the old Scottish poets and I am at present writing fictional and humorous short stories.
