Краткое описание

The Last Fighting Tommy: The Life of Harry Patch, Last Veteran of the Trenches, 1898–2009.

"We came across a lad from A company. He was ripped open from his shoulder to his waist by shrapnel and lying in a pool of blood. When we got to him, he said: 'Shoot me.' He was beyond human help and, before we could draw a revolver, he was dead. And the final word he uttered was 'Mother.' I remember that lad in particular. It's an image that has haunted me all my life, seared into my mind." Born June 17, 1898, Harry Patch was 111 years, one month, one week, and one day old at the time of his death in 2009. He was, aside from being the oldest man in Europe at the time, the last British soldier alive to have fought in the trenches of World War I. Richard van Emden, who has interviewed more than 270 veterans of the Great War, spoke to Patch about his vivid and remarkable memories of fighting in the mud at the Battle of Passchendaele, as well as his Edwardian childhood, working as a fireman on the home front in World War II, and his international fame in later life as a veteran."This articulate, modest and outspoken man not only remains one of the last living links with a traumatic event that has become part of the national consciousness, but is an unassailable witness of what the war was like for those who fought in it."—Daily Telegraph (London)
