Generals Die In Bed: A Story From The Trenches
Charles Yale Harrison

Annick Press

First published in 1930, this book is based on Harrison’s experience in World War I. He tells of the horrors of life in the trenches, as seen through the eyes of a young Montrealer sent to fight on the Western Front. Maps identifying key battle locations and a useful introduction place the war in historical and geographical context, while photographs make the Great War vivid for readers. mRb
