There were many villages, fields and trenches in France and Flanders that saw sustained bloody fighting during The Great War. Amongst these are two relatively unknown villages – Croisilles and Fontaine-les-Croisilles which saw bloody and prolonged fighting from March 1917 to August 1918. During 1917 Fontaine, and the Hindenburg Line nearby, withstood British assaults from April to November with each attack adding to the British death toll for ever decreasing gains.

I Wish They’d Killed You In A Decent Show explores how the fighting ebbed and flowed around these villages and the Hindenburg Line between. The nature of this fighting exhibited everything from open warfare to savage trench fighting; from the employment of cavalry and fortifications to the use of the emerging technologies of tanks, gas and offensive mining. This book explains some of what happened in each of these attacks and details the lives and deaths of a number of those who participated.
