This book, written in the shadow of the Ypres by a young artist who is captain of a machine-gun section, describes with breezy freshness the training and fighting of the Canadian army and the lighthearted courage with which they have mocked death.

“The word ‘crumps’ is trench slang for a bursting shell – ‘on account of the sound they make, a sort of cru-ump! Noise as they explode.’ The author is a young Canadian artist who writes of the early days of the war. He touches lightly on war horrors in his text…There is a very brief foreword by Major-General Leonard Wood.” -Book Review Digest

“Of life in the trenches the writer tells his story with light and cheerful spirit and yet not without the full sense of duty and responsibility.” -Boston Transcript

“‘Crumps’ takes the whole thing a deal as a college boy takes a big football game; it’s all something of a lark, a glorious great game, and even the horrors are touched on with a latent feeling that they are, in their own way, humorous.” -New York Times

“The chief interest, in fact, of the book is in its earlier chapters, which tell of things that other men have left largely unreported.” -Springfield Republican

PREFATORY NOTE HEADQUARTERS SOUTHEASTERN DEPARTMENT CHARLESTON, S.C. 11th August, 1917 Captain Keene has made an interesting contribution to the literature of the present war in his account of service, which covers the experience of a young officer in the making and on the battle front,--the transformation of an artist into a first-class machine-gun officer. He covers the training period at home and abroad and the work at the front. This direct and interesting account should serve to bring home to all of us an appreciation of how much has to be done before troops can be made effective for modern war, the cost of unpreparedness, and the disadvantage under which troops, partially equipped, labor when they meet highly organized ones, prepared, even to the last detail, for all the exigencies of modern war. It also brings out the splendid spirit of Canada, the Mother Country, and the distant Colonies,--the spirit of the Empire, united and determined in a just cause. This and similar accounts should serve to make clear to us the wisdom of the admonition of Washington and many others: "In time of peace prepare for war." Many young Americans are about to undergo experiences similar to those of Captain Keene, and a perusal of this modest and straight-forward narrative will help in the great work of getting ready. LEONARD WOOD, Maj.-Gen. U.S.A.
