About this product
- DescriptionWorking from his tattered WWI diaries, Frank Whiting takes us back to the horrors of trench warfare. With him we endure cold and hungry days in German prison camps and with him we risk death again and again in repeated bids for freedom.
- Author BiographyLured by the promise of cheap Saskatchewan land, young Frank Whitingis family came from England in 1904. They broke the sod and roofed their cabin with it and cleared the land of rocks and stones. By the time Frank was 20 he had his own farm and had finished his second year at Agricultural College. But it was 1915. He went to war, survived all the major Canadian battles, was captured and escaped - frequently. He returned to Britain and married his English sweetheart. At home here in Canada he farmed and freelanced for a dozen years before selling up and moving to Vancouver where he died of pneumonia in 1937.
