After a year at Oxford University, Edward went to fight in the First World War.He wrote:I lived in a house with twenty-five other soldiers.At night we talked about our lives and our families. It was very interesting.I could speak freely to different people-rich and poor，young and old.But I also saw the blood and noise of war.One day in 1916 my driver took me to the town of Loos in Belgium.I got out of the car and walked to the top of the hill.Down below me there was heavy fighting and I felt very sad.An hour later I returned to my car. I'll never forget what I saw.My driver was dead. While I was away, somebody shot him in the neck.When the war finished in 1918, Edward returned to Buckingham Palace.One night he was talking to his father in the dining room.I don't understand why countries fight, the Prince said．The war has finished, but nothing has changed. There are still millions of poor and hungry people.
