Description
The author of The Autobiography of the British Soldier and The Wild Life here tells the extraordinary story of Britain's junior officers in World War I, many of whom went straight from the classroom to the Western Front, where they led their men "over the top" and were also the last to retreat. Incorporating a huge range of first-person accounts—including poignant letters and diaries sent home or to their old schools—John Lewis-Stempel explains what motivated these boy-men to act in such an extraordinary, heroic way, knowing before they went that they faced a life expectancy of six weeks.

"It is only rarely that a book deserves to be recommended unreservedly but John Lewis-Stempel's Six Weeks falls firmly into that category.... This is a book that should be read by every young man who aspires to serve as an officer in the Army; it will educate him about how to behave in command of soldiers and about how to face the perils of war."—Guards Magazine
