Description:

This is a complete and unabridged MP3 audio book (talking book) of a book published in 1917 at the height of the first world war (WWI).  The author Jeffery Farnol is better know for his works of romantic fiction, but in this departure Jeffery recites the events observations and anecdotes of his tour of Great Britain's war effort.

The book follows Jeffery as he visits a number of key locations around Britain and on the continent, each demonstrating how members of English society have come together to work towards the goal of "defeating the hun".

On a visit to a naval dockyard, he reports on how the ships are being constructed, takes us on a tour of a destroyer and introduces us to the crew. He also visits a machine gun factory, and discovers how the great guns are built. His tour continues onto the continent where he visits a hospital, a training camp, and artillery battery at the front in action.

While in France he discovers  the horrors of war, learning that it's more than just guns and glory, there's blood and death close at hand.

A visit to an active aerodrome shows us the newly arrived aircraft, and from the people there we learn of their daring in combat. Finally the tour draws to an end at Ypres, known simply as "wipers" to the troops.  A place of great history and architecture now turned to ashes and rubble. Yet, despite the destruction, the author finds glory, honour and even hope for a better future.

This fascinating insight into Britain during the peak years of the WWI war effort is available for you to listen to in  MP3 format.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
