Book Description:
Tijdens de Eerste Wereldoorlog was Nederland neutraal, maar het dreigende oorlogsgeweld in de ons omringende landen kwam heel dichtbij. In maart 1916 werd ook Herman Salomons opgeroepen voor militaire dienst. Onder zijn pseudoniem Melis Stoke publiceerde hij later zijn militaire memoires 'Van Aardappel-mes tot Officiersdegen, uit het Dagboek van een Landstormplichtige'. Hierin biedt hij ons een humoristische en soms cynische kijk op het militaire leven van die tijd. (Samenvatting door Bart de Leeuw)
