"Our main concern in this new work is neither with victory nor defeat. Tactics and strategy get little consideration in these pages. Our preoccupation from first to last is with the individual and personal reactions of events upon those who took part in them, from Private to Field-Marshal. "I Was There" is the keynote of every chapter. Nothing that we print here had its origin outside of immediate personal experience." from the editor's foreword.
