Book Review – I Survived Didn’t I? The Great War Reminiscences of Private ‘Ginger’ Bryne



This is an extraordinary account of survival in the Great War. The author was persuaded to tell his story at the age of 82, proving that it is never too late to try to draw primary information from someone who was there. His account has been sensitively edited and introduced by a veteran of WWII, Joy Cave of the Woman’s Auxiliary Air Force. There is a photoplate section with appropriate supporting images and this is an entertaining and moving account of the terrors of trench warfare and the power of the machine gun.
