Edward Francis Lynch was a private in the First Australian Imperial Force who saw action in World War I on the Western Front between 1916 and 1919. Following his return to Australia he wrote about his war experiences in the 1920s and 1930s, filling twenty exercise books. The work was eventually published in 2006 as a book entitled Somme Mud. The book's editor, military historian Will Davies asserts that the "Nulla" character is based upon Lynch himself and that Lynch used the device to try to distance himself from the story. review >>> Somme Mud is Australia's version of All Quiet on the Western Front. Told with dignity, candour and surprising wit, it is a testament to the power of the human spirit, a moving true story of humanity and friendship.
