Abstract

AgedĀ 19, at the outbreak of World War I, the author traveled to France and posed as a man in the British Expeditionary Forces where she worked as a sapper digging tunnels on the western front. She was later arrested when it was discovered she was a woman. In this volume, which was heavily censored by the War Office, she recounts her experiences.
