The tone of this collection is determinedly humorous, reporting the lighter side of the conflict as viewed by its Cockney participants. Even so, the grimness behind what was in reality a brutal and highly mechanised conflict cut through many of the memoirs. The collection of short memoirs, many illustrated by the famed Bert Thomas, is divided into five categories - Action, Lull, Hospital, High Seas and Here and There. Prefaced by an introduction by Sir Ian Hamilton, the British Commander-in-Chief who oversaw the Allies' unhappy campaign in Gallipoli.
