The First World War Fact Book
The First World War Fact Book
Price: 2.98

5.0 out of 5 stars A great WW1 resource, 16 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read Addington's last two Kindle books (World War One: A Layman's Guide and Heroes of The Line) and loved them both so was quick to get this. I was not disappointed as it is another high quality piece of work. Jam packed full of interesting factoids that are organised in easy to follow sections, I have learned loads already and I have only just flicked through a couple of times! This is a great resource for anyone who wants to learn about WW1.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful emotional roller coaster, 11 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Heroes of The Line is a wonderful small e-book with a big heart. Addington's description of his cycle ride across the trench lines of the Western Front is a warts-an-all diary of the journey; Brutally honest (especially when he talks about how unfit/unprepared he was) and often funny, his writing style transports you to directly onto the French and Belgian roads so you get the feeling you are pedaling with him. In contrast, his treatment of the eight `Heroes' is respectful and insightful, giving the reader a glimpse into what ordinary soldiers and officers on both sides (there is a German soldier included too) went through. These stories both inspiring and sad at the same time.

The mix of the diary and the soldier stories works really well and there is the added warm feeling that you have contributed to a great charity in the Royal British Legion. Well worth a read.

A brilliant read, full of great tails from a footballer who has a personality and a wicked tash.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great, easy to read introduction to a complicated subject., 29 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Finally a history book that I have managed to read, understand, and actually enjoy! So many history books are tough going, but this one is actually quite an enjoyable read. Goes into just enough detail to get a decent understanding, but doesn't get bogged down in it all which is (in my opinon) a common failing of other history books. This is definitely a great introduction to the subject for someone who is perhaps reading about it for the first time.
