5.0 out of 5 stars
Powerful and thought-provoking, 7 July 2009
Bill Lamin's 'Letters from the Trenches' is compulsory reading both for serious historians with an interest in the First World War and anyone who relishes a great human interest story. The periods of intense drama, combined with a rare insight into day to day life in, and out of, the trenches, shed rare light into a dark period of our recent history. This is history at its most challenging and powerful.
