The Cold Light of Dawn
by David Black
A short story: In 1916, the war on the Western Front was locked in stalemate. Sometimes, surrounded by horror and tragedy men cracked. When 18-year-old 2nd Lieutenant Andrew Starkey was commissioned into the infantry, he crossed the Channel and joined his new battalion in Belgium. The realities of war, and cruel circumstance led him to a nightmare scenario, where no British officer wanted to go.
