Wipers: A Soldier's Tale From the Great War
by Jeff Simmons
Thousands of casualties. Every day. For four years. That was reality for the Allies defending the city of Ypres, Belgium, during World War One. The soldiers didn't know how to pronounce "Ypres" (EE-pruh), so they called the killing grounds "Wipers." "Wipers: A Soldier's Tale From the Great War," tells the story of an English coal miner-turned-soldier and his struggle to live amidst death.
