Summary
Summary: "Diggers in France not only compelling describes the diggers at battle in the front line, but also their lives away from the front when wounded or on leave. Incredibly, in places the front line was only a thousand metres from rest areas where they could enjoy a coffee; it was possible to be in the trenches one day and in London the next. Paris was closer still."--Publisher description
