Take an uninhibited inside look at the First World War through a collection of 12 stories. Walter Stephen's A Dirty Swindle provides a Scottish perspective to the reports from the front line and home, delving deeper to unveil an unencumbered truth. The varied accounts chronicle the progress of troops from recruitment to training to the front line, revealing the failures of those in command as the Great War became known as a dirty swindle.
