Description

On their march towards the Somme, and Beaumont Hamel, the young men of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment raised their voices to sing “When the Great Red Dawn is Shining,” a song about returning home to the people they love. Howard Morry was one of the young men who managed to make it back. And now, one hundred years after the events that changed his life, we hear Morry’s voice, in these pages, rising from the silence to recount his days with the famed Regiment. In memoirs expertly selected and contextualized by Christopher Morry, When the Great Red Dawn Is Shining offers a rare first-hand account of life on the front lines as told by a soldier preserving his memories for generations to come.
