First major indictment of the British war effort to be published. Montague, senior journalist with the Guardian Newspaper, was initially opposed to war with Germany but thought it his duty to join up once hostilities had been declared. Served in the ranks of an infantry battalion before accepting a commission in Military Intelligence as an official press censor, writer of propaganda, and escort to dignitaries visiting the front.
