Written in 1916 during the peak of the
first world war this book follows Mr Doyle as he visits first the
British, Italian and finally the French sectors of the front. He
meets with everyone from the highest national generals to the
lowliest of front line troopers.
Although a work that can be classified
as mid-war propaganda, it does offer some very interesting insights
into the British mindset at this time of the war. The text reveals
that the Italians were at this point of the war on the back foot and

fascinating to realise that the British "stiff upper lip"
was alive and well as shown when the author feels that he shouldn't
show any emotion in front of foreigners. It also includes an
interesting anecdote where a French general seems to think Sherlock
Holmes is a real person.
