About the Author

From his birth in 1916 until he ran away to London, William Woodruff lived in the heart of Blackburn's weaving community. He eventually went to Oxford University, is now 87 and lives in Florida.


'A remarkable book indeed, bringing us close to the huge face of war' J. B. Priestley; 'One of the most sensitive and moving books of the war, both authentic and poetic' A. L. Rowse, TLS; 'I've never read a better book about war; a book so humane, so wretched, so raw it had me choked half the time while I was reading it ... Woodruff is a poet' TIME OUT; 'A masterpiece ... In some respects it is a better book than All Quiet on the Western Front' IRISH TIMES
