An extraordinary mix of black humor, fake entertainment programs, and pastiche articles, the "Wipers Times," the famed trench newspaper of World War One, constitutes a unique record of life on the front line. This complete facsimile edition of the paper, produced to accompany a BBC dramatization, is a historical masterpiece that enables us to sample the real spirit of the trenches--from the safety of our armchairs.
