After witnessing the infamous German naval bombardment at Hartlepool which resulted in 700 deaths and injuries, Norman Collins joined the Seaforth Highlanders in 51st Highland Division while under age. As a young officer, he fought at Beaumont Hamel on the Somme, was wounded soon after and returned for the Battle of Arras, April 1917. Later that year he was severely wounded at Passchendaele and suffered battle fatigue. Fortunately Norman had an unusually detailed collection of letters, documents, illustrations and photographs which the Author has drawn on extensively and the result is a marvellous moving biography of a very special veteran, who lived to be 100.

About the Author

The Author came across Norman Collins while researching his best selling TV tie-in book Veterans. He was immediately struck by this truly remarkable character, who was then over 100 years old. Sadly Norman has now died but Richard Van Emden had not been deterred from writing what is by any standard a most exhilarating memoir of an exceptional veteran.
