Mud and Khaki (audio product)

MP3 File

FNH Audio presents an unabridged reading of this collection of sketches from Flanders and France, during WWI.

First published in 1917, during the latter part of the war, this book has captured the mood of the country at the time. By carefully selecting anecdotes and previously published articles relating the war taking place across the channel, the author created a blend of narrative that is by turns inspiring, insightful, funny, and bitter-sweet.  Including the trench-wisdom of "Pongo" Simpson, and Margery Debenham's terrible tale of loss and heartache, this book will not fail to touch you.

Running time: 212 minutes

Format: MP3

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.
