First-person account by British Army Private Albert Money of his experiences in one of the bloodiest and most futile battles of World War 1. Seriously wounded by machine gun fire he spent hours in No-man's land lying in a muddy ditch surrounded by the dead and dying, eventually crawling back to the British trenches. Casualties for the day, 10,000 men. Territory gained, not a single inch.
