'Tommy Atkins', a convenient label for the typical British Army infantryman of the period, has become an enduring figure of modern British history. This book explores the reality of the Tommy's life on the Western Front between 1914 and 1918.

The figure of the Tommy has been highly mythologized. War poets and many historians have surrounded him with pathos and poppies, a terrible aura of lost innocence and horrifying, of that there can be no doubt. Yet alongside the horror of war, the full story of Tommy Atkins has greater depths than is often appreciated.
