Rate this:
Private Rabjohn was a trained artist, and as such he was assigned to draw dugouts, map newly captured trenches. This allowed him to carry an artist's sketchbook on the battlefield - a freedom he put to good use, drawing everything he saw. Here, in vivid detail, are images of the captured pilot of a downed German biplane; the horrific Flanders mud; a German observation balloon exploding in midair. Award-winning author John Wilson brings his skills as a historian and researcher to bear, carefully curating the diary to provide context and tell the story of Private Rabjohn's war.
