This book looks fascinating: the war diaries of a Norfolk man who served through the whole of the Great War and beyond, recently rediscovered by his family and published for the first time - or at least mostly for the first time: the family believes extracts were published in the EDP, perhaps in the 1930s, but haven't been able to trace them. William Bennett was on the Somme and at Passchendaele; he has many gripping and graphic stories to tell about the soldier's life. The book's Norfolk connections are also strong, though, the first chapter full of local colour and with return visits from the front on leave or for medical treatment.
