I first read this book about 4 years ago and sobbed my way through the final accounts written by men who had fought at the front. It's not all doom and gloom! It is a funny, truthful and sometimes painful account written by the men who served at the front. It isn't untill you read a book like this that you can truely appreciate what was going on not only on the front, but the reception these veterans recieved upon their return to Britain. I would love to see this book on the curiculem list for every senior school for maybe then everyone one would remember just how much we owe to our "brave and valient boys".
