"O Christ Almighty, now I'm stuck!"First separate edition of this early anti-war poem.
The first of the three very scarce Sassoon numbers in the seven Reprints from the Cambridge Magazine series, Keynes noted that these reprints were produced "mostly commemorating the sacrifice made by the young men killed in the First World War production was arranged by A. T. Bartholomew and from notes made by him it seems probable that 200 or 250 copies of each reprint were made". The Cambridge Magazine, edited by C. K. Ogden, was markedly anti-militaristic, and the publication of this grim war poem notably precedes Sassoon's notorious pacifist Soldier's Declaration in 1917.
