On 1 July 1916, Lieutenant Wilfred 'Billie' Nevill, an officer of the 8th East Surrey Regiment, issued his men with footballs to kick into No Man's Land when the whistle went for the advance - as though the Somme was to be a Wembley Cup Final. Nevill and most of his men were dead within the first few minutes of the battle. Based on over 200 letters to his family from the front, this volume tells Nevill's story. This correspondence forms one of the best collections of First World War letters held by the Imperial War Museum. In her linking text, the author gives the background to the letters and provides a fascinating framework for the portrayal of Nevill's life.
