Author's nephew inherited the original manuscript and notes, the greater portion of which was written soon after the war from diaries and notes Kyd had made "when my recollection was fresh and youthful." Kyd revised it in 1899, and his nephew had it published in 1940. It sold well as the first three printings were of 2,000 copies each. An excellent first hand account.
