I don’t think I’ve made the right choice here I thought joining the army. it’s horrible we sleep in tunnels hoping the enemy don’t slit our throat as we sleep. I’m on the front lines I watch men and woman drop dead or drop screaming in pain. I just hope the war ends soon.

I’ve not been able to write as my squad was captured and taken for interrogation I lost my last friend jack he had the worst death kneecaps blown out and throat cut. I’m writing now why enemies are running over our lines killing hundreds of men I fear these might be the last moments of my life.
