Description

Captain Charles Bruce Bairnsfather (9 July 1887 – 29 September 1959) was a prominent British humorist and cartoonist. His best-known cartoon character is Old Bill.

Captain Charles Bruce Bairnsfather (9 July 1887 – 29 September 1959) was a prominent British humorist and cartoonist.

I just recently heard about the collected drawings of Bruce Bairnsfather who served in the British Army in France in World War One. Now that I own a book of his art work from the front lines in 1915, the first thing that comes to mind is "Willie and Joe" by Bill Mauldin who became so well known for his drawings of fictional GIs in World War Two. Since 2014 is the start of the 100th Anniversary memorial of the start of The Great War in August,1914, Bairnsfather is more relevant than ever!

In it the spirit of the British citizen soldier, who, hating war as he hated hell, flocked to the colours to have his whack at the apostles of blood and iron, is translated to cold and permanent print. Here is the great war reduced to grim and gruesome absurdity. It is not fun poked by a mere looker-on, it is the fun felt in the war by one who has been through it. Captain bruce bairnsfather.

I just recently heard about the collected drawings of Bruce Bairnsfather who served in the British Army in France in World War One.
Now that I own a book of his art work from the front lines in 1915, the first thing that comes to mind is "Willie and Joe" by Bill Mauldin who became so well known for his drawings of fictional GIs in World War Two. Since 2014 is the start of the 100th Anniversary memorial of the start of The Great War in August,1914, Bairnsfather is more relevant than ever! His drawings were humourous and very British in their language and perspective. A must read for any military historian or fan of British humor!

based on the fact that I have been repeatedly lied to by members of Amazon upper management, I can not recommend any Amazon sold product. They sold me a used laptop that they advertised as new. Moira P. lied to me directly.

If you are interested in Bill Maudlin's WWII cartoons, you will see this guy as a precursor who once in a while slips over from the WWI framing into WWII framing. But on the whole, these cartoons are framed in a fashion that is not only out of style, but to some extent impenetrable in terms of modern understanding of what's amusing. They are interesting primarily as sociological artifacts. But as such, I found them very interesting.

Bought the paperback edition. It's nothing but captions from the book and no illustrations. I had read the reviews about Kindle versions and thought the paperback would be different . I was wrong

I own one of the origional copies, but without the actual drawings this book was a bit dissapointing. Anyway I can still read it now and then

Although I am fortunate enough to own an original copy of this book, I thought it would be nice to have on my kindle. At $3.88 its not a tremendous amount of $$, but still a GREAT dissappointment! Bairnsfather was the Bill Mauldin of WWI, but all you get in this "publication" are the captions under the original art, NOT the drawings themselves!!! One HUGE RIP-OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My father-in-law (Bruce Alvin Bairnsfather)
collected anything he could find that Bruce Bairnsfather took part in. After much research , and some rather strange findings, we decided that there must be some relation with our family and his. Who knows? All that aside we do enjoy the great humor of this wonderful funny man. . If you study his work and what went into it you will appreciate it even more. Some of the drawings and stories were wrote right on the front lines. I am excited to have this copy.
A gem of a book. I remember reading the original fragments at my nans house 30 years ago,sadly for me the book was lost.It was refreshing to find a reprint of fragments,however the reprint is much smaller than the original,the original as I Remember being at least A4 size. Fragments reprint is an excellent copy for those who wish to view the dark sometimes light humor that Captain Bairnsfather produced. My only problem is that some of the images look like bad photo copies,too feint or too dark.
For those seeking a diferernt view of ww1 I would recommend this book.
