For a historian or genealogist, there is a depth of richness here. Bird detailed his life in the trenches with journals. He wrote about poor management, gruesome deaths, small delights, and in so doing has left a remarkable record of World War One from the perspective of a Canadian soldier. It's not easy reading, but it's interesting stuff for a scholar or researcher.
