"Chevrons to Stars, a publication printed for officer trainees in Britain, showed that even in mid 1917, many remained convinced that a wonderful experience lay across the Channel. Without intending to convey a negative or gruesome connotation, one soldier, in exemplifying submissions from several others, told of his ernest desire to depart what he regarded as a 'tame' world for 'excitement, blood, thunder and flame!'"
