E. W. Hornung was a noted English author who wrote around the turn of the Twentieth Century, his most famous creation being the Gentleman Thief, Raffles. During the later years of the First World War (1917-1918), the author visited the military camps of the British army. He was particularly struck by the character of the soldiers in their moments of brief repose out of the firing line and decided to write a semi-fictionalized account of the camps. This volume `Notes of a Camp-Follower on the Western Front' is that account; gripping, emotive and lucid, Hornung's clear style and vivid eye of detail recreates the British troops that fought in Flanders Fields.
