Harry Patch of Somerset, England, is 109 years old. At age of 18, he went off to fight World War I. He was wounded on the battlefield in Belgium and saw several of his friends die.

90 years later, he decided to make a trip back to those battlefields. He went with a historian, Richard van Emden. Patch wrote down his memories from the war as he walked over those same grounds where he fought.

Patched stood over a trench which servers as a war cemetery. He laid a wreath on the site. His emotions ran strong. “Too many died,” said Patch. “War isn’t worth one life.”
