From the cover: “This is the first hand account of the wartime experiences of Hardy Parkhurst, who served with the Second Battalion of the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers from 1941 to 1946. This fascinating diary describes daily life, interspersed with comments of the global progress of the war and the writer’s personal reflections. His love of nature permeates the pages, providing a stark contrast to the horrors and grim vulgarity of war. Diary of a Soldier is a remarkable insight into one man’s experience of war, creating a rare blend of historical document and moving prose, providing overall an understanding of the hardship and suffering, both physical and mental, endured by all those who served in World War II.”
