Available / dispatched within 1 - 4 weeks
At 31 years old, Major Cyrus Inches resolved to survive the Great War, and did so without losing his sense of humour, in spite of the tragedies he constantly faced. His letters home were stored and left undisturbed for almost ninety years. Cleverly written with wit and humour, they reveal voluminous details of life during the war. Cyrus Inches also kept a diary and published a booklet called The 1st Canadian Heavy Battery in France -- Farewell Message to NCOs and Men, which chronicled the movements and the battles of his battery. The booklet and letters combine to create a complete history of one Canadian officer's experiences -- from Valcartier and the First Battle of Ypres to Mons, and the months of demobilization after that.Uncle Cy's War is volume 14 in the New Brunswick Military Heritage Series.
