"FROM NOTES AND WELL REMEMBERED INCIDENCES" by Fred L. Coxen
World War I from the journal of Captain Fred G. Coxen RFA (Royal Field Artillery)
From the PREFACE:
"My purpose for writing this book was to honor my grandfather by telling his story. In addition I wanted to impart to the reader the experiences, as well as the conditions of war, and what it was like trying to survive each day.
"The story is based on the World War 1 journal written by Captain Frederick G. Coxen, who served in the Royal Field Artillery (RFA) and the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1905 to 1919."
