Under heavy fire, with his platoon commander already killed, Private Everitt is wounded in the leg.

He then finds himself marooned himself in no mans land, surrounded by other casualties. Eventually he manages to get back to his own lines, before being evacuated with a Blighty wound.The Somme is an edited version of an original story written after the First World War by Donald Gristwood, who served on the Western Front where he was wounded twice. It is an attempt to give an unvarnished and honest account of war seen from the point of view of the ordinary soldier.
