Impressions of the front lines in the West by Arthur Conan Doyle, famous for his Sherlock Holmes stories.

‘In the course of May 1916, the Italian authorities expressed a desire that some independent observer from Great Britain should visit their lines and report his impressions… I was asked to undertake this mission. In order to carry it out properly, I stipulated that I should be allowed to visit the British lines first, so that I might have some standard of comparison… Later I obtained permission to pay a visit to the French front as well.’
