Biography: 

In a conversation with his nephew about the First World War, Gavin Stevens refers to soldiers involved in the fighting of World War I as the “whole generation of the world’s young men” (242). Gavin is exaggerating, but in fact over 30,000,000 men were killed or wounded during this war, the first great global conflict. In the same conversation he refers to two different categories of combatants, comparing “the groundling during his crawling minutes and the airman during his condensed seconds” (242). (The "groundling" is an infantryman.)
