Trench Fever

by Christopher Moore

Little, Brown And Company | August 5, 2014 | Trade Paperback

Not yet rated | write a review
For Chris Moore, the Great War has developed from a childhood fascination to a full-blown obsession, both for the actuality, of the war - its archives and its archaeology - as well as its abiding influence on English language, manners and customs.

Exasperated with the emphasis most war literature places on the officers, generals and political leaders, Chris Moore decided to trace the war-time experiences of one man, one personal history among the six million voiceless ranks of Britons in uniform. He chose Private Walter Butterworth, Fifth Battalion, the Leicestershire Regiment, an obscure infantryman in a disparaged outfit of amateurs that somehow managed to win one of the greatest battles of history - who also happened to be Chris Moore''s grandfather.

In TRENCH FEVER, Chris Moore retrieves his grandfather''s war-song by following (with reluctant family in tow) the three year march of the Fifth Leicesters through France and Flanders.

Editorial Reviews

This is a deeply personal book and has clearly taken some guts to write... Moore has achieved something that even the best history books cannot manage; he has shown that WWI is still relevant to everyone, and will continue to be so.-FOCUS
