Military History Photo Friday: The Cleanest Soldier in the World

During World War One, lots of companies jumped on the patriotic bandwagon to market their products. Here's a typical ad.

So was the British soldier the "cleanest fighter in the world"? I doubt he felt that way, what with all the rats, lice, mud, and rotting bodies. But hey, they were no dirtier than any other soldier in the war!

Today the second in my Trench Raiders series of WWI action novels, Digging In, went live. It's available for $2.99 from Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, and all other major ebook outlets. Coming soon will be a related novella about the famous Christmas Truce.
