Some of the diaries are of the usual stuff that soldiers deal with on a daily basis and can be quite drab and boring.

While other entries in his diary describe the action and activities of the battalion in detail:

What makes this interesting, at least to me, is that his diary is a personal one and not the official battalion or regimental diary. Although it may parallel what is written in the official diaries, he will also include items of a personal nature or of interest just to him.
