Edwin Clark was an ordinary Englishman who emigrated to Canada in 1912 to begin a new life only to find himself back in England two years later en-route to the Western Front as a Driver in the 4th. Brigade, Canadian Field Artillery.

This captivating and moving story account chronicles one man’s journey from enlistment and basic training to the battlefields of the Somme and Passchendaele. The book focuses on the daily routine and hardships suffered by both the men and the war horses and their “unique” relationship. It also describes the lengths Edwin and his fellow drivers went to try and alleviate the horses’ suffering under almost impossible conditions.

Edwin spent three and half harrowing years at the front in the elite 13th. Battery which participated in most of the major battles before being invalided back injured to England four weeks before the armistice. This is his perilous Great War story.
