' It is a rare occasion that an account such as that provided by Clememts, in such an articulate and outspoken manner, becomes available, with such an appeal to military and social historians.'   James Durney & Hugh Crawford

Charles Clements of Killadoon, Celbridge, Ireland, joined the British Army as a young subaltern. After service in India with the 4th Queen's Own Hussars, he returned to England as storm clouds gathered over Europe. He served in France during the 'Phoney War' which ended with the German invasion of France and the Low Countries.

Charles accompanied the 4th Hussars to North Africa and subsequently to Greece in 1941 to thwart an Axis invasion. He was captured.along with the bulk of his regiment, in Greece and spent the next four years as a prisoner-of-war in Germany. Liberated in April 1945 Charles returned to Britain to an appointment as commandant of Bridgend POW Camp, where he was guardian of many of the commanders of the German armed forces.

Throughout his time in the British Army Charles maintained a diary, and in later years began to compile his writing for publication.
