    Get this from a library! Some desperate glory: the World War I diary of a British officer, [Edwin Campion Vaughan]. Some Desperate Glory charts the progress of an enthusiastic and patriotic young officer who marched into battle with Palgrave's Golden Treasury in his pack. Intensely honest and revealing, his diary evokes the day-to-day minutiae of trench warfare: its constant dangers and mind-numbing routine interspersed with lyrical and sometimes comic.

Some Desperate Glory includes a chronological anthology of the poets' works, telling the story of the war not only through the lives of these writers but also through their art. This unique volume unites the poetry and the history of the war—so often treated separately—granting readers the pride, strife, and sorrow of the individual soldier Brand: Farrar, Straus And Giroux.
