This was an impulse buy, it's very good but I don't really need it, the danger of on line shopping is availability

1 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Hereward on 3 Aug 2011
Format: Paperback
TO THE GREEN FIELDS BEYOND is a play about a single tank and its crew in the Great War. The play opens on the day before a battle in 1918, as the crew prepare themselves for the fray. It then skips the battle, where the tank was destroyed, and returns to the empty camp where the ghosts of the crew return.

Sadly this is utter tripe. Absolutely nothing happens. The men talk, disappear and then return as ghosts. But nothing they talk about is particularly insightful or interesting. It's just pre-battle boilerplate. The only saving grace is the period slang, which is collected in an excellent glossary. However slang is best suited for novels, as it proves here, with many of the conversations proving near-impenetrable unless you've bookmarked the glossary page with your finger. God only knows how the audience ever understood what was going on.
