A Doctor On The Western Front
Henry Owens served as a front-line RAMC medical officer during the Great War and kept a diary of his time there. He was a member of the original British Expeditionary Force (The Old Contemptibles) and entered the war in France almost from the start. His graphic and vivid notes provide the reader with a unique viewpoint of what it was like to be there during the four years of conflict. He died aged 31 in 1921 after a short illness but left the legacy of his diary. A Five Star read!
