Scope and Content

Rough manuscript (and 5 sheets of typescript) notes presumably used as background material for the book. The material consists of very rough drafts of material for various chapters; general notes on war matters and life at the Front; and a series of letters from a fictional private at the Front Line relating his experiences to his friend at home in England.


The material has been left in exactly the order it was found and presumably the order in which CEM left it, as some of the letters seem to have been taken out of sequence to form background material for specific chapters.
