My Story - The Trenches
Billy Stevens, The Western Front 1914-1918
Sixteen-year-old Billy Stevens joins the military to “kick the Kaiser back to Germany.” He lies about his age to join up, and is initially disappointed when he is assigned to the Royal Engineers because of his telegraph training. But soon enough he is sent to the Front and must face the terrible sights and sounds of the trenches.
