“It’s late winter 1916 and the conditions are almost incredibleWe live in a world of the Somme of mudWe sleep in, work, fight, wade in it and many of us dieWe see it, feel it, eat it and curse it, but we can’t escape it, not even by death.Edward Lynch enlisted when he was just 18 years old – one of thousands of fresh face men who proudly brandished by the crowd as they embarked for FranceIt was 1916 and the majority had no idea of the reality of the Somme trenches, the traumatized soldiers they would encounter, the countless, terrible contradictions of warPrivate Lynch was one of those who survived, and, on his return, wrote of the Somme, Mud in pencil in over 20 school exercise books, perhaps in the hope of coming to terms with all he had seen thereWritten from the point of view of the ordinary “Tommy” and said with dignity, frankly and surprisingly of the spirit, the Somme of Mud is a testimony of the human spirit: to get out of the mud, which threatened to suck a man, the soul rises a fabulous history of humanity and friendshipFor all those who are marking the centenary of the Great War, it is rare and precious to find
