I saw the film in my early teens – on TV. I’m reading everything I can on the First World War in this the centerary year. ‘Johnny got his gun’ is a moving and memorable account of one young soldier’s plight when he is terribly wounded and survives. The author’s story and how the book was oublished then banned makes for fascinating reading too.
