Hi there. I have just found a copy of 'Gun Fodder' by J.F. Snook printed in 1930. I am really looking forward to reading it, but does anyone know anything about it of interest?

Cheers.

A rare book indeed. From the dustjacket :- Snook was born in Limehouse in 1896. He enlisted in 1914, at the age of 17, in the Essex Reg. He was at Loos, Ypres & the Somme where he won the DCM. In 1918 after Arras & Cambrai he returned to England as a Sergeant to take up his commission. He was a passionate anti-war activist.

It's certainly a fairly bitter book - he doesn't have a particularly high opinion of those in charge but it is liberally laced with humour. A classic & hard to find nowadays at anything like a reasonable price.

The original jacket gives a good indication of the slant of the book :-
