On 7th June 1917, nineteen massive mines erupted beneath the Messines Ridge, smashing open the German frontline. It was the largest man-made explosion in history. Ten thousand German soldiers died. Two of those mines were laid and fired by men of the 1st Australian Tunneling Company. Commanded by Captain Oliver Woodward, it was made up of miners and engineers rather than parade-ground soldiers. Drawing on Woodward's diaries and other first-hand accounts, historian Will Davies tells the true story of this extraordinary yet little-known war waged ninety feet beneath No Man's Land: a Stygian battle-ground of labyrinthine tunnels where a man might drown in viscous clay, chone on poisonous air, or die in vicious hand-to-hand fighting in the darkness.
