In the Trenches is the recently published story of #57 Frank
Iriam, an original member of the 8th Battalion, CEF (Little
Black Devils). It is the rough-edged memoir of a scout-sniper
who served in the trenches from 1915-1918; fought at Ypres,
Mount Sorrel, the Somme, Vimy, all the Canadian Corps major
battles. Written in the 1920-30s, Iriam tells a no-nonsense
story of the dangers and tactics of a First World War sniper.
He talks about rifles (the Ross) and scopes and gives incredible
detail of the life of a sniper rarely found in Great War
memoirs. He also mentions dozens of comrades, all researchable,
which gives the book a strong sense of reality. This book
is a unique contribution to Great War literature. It is
a really great book. hb with dj, 276 pages.
Sorry the hard cover version is SOLD OUT but paper back still available.
