5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent book, 24 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a great pity that this author past away. I have really enjoyed his books on the Great War. He has given a great over view of the war and has gone along way to dispel the myth of the 'lions lead by donkeys'. This of course was a left wing bias that grew out of the sixties and has for too long been seems as the 'truth'.

The truth is much more complicated than our left wing parties would have you believe. This does not mean Haig and company are let off the hook, no they get there harsh comments on there generalship but only when it's warranted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brillant film, 16 Oct. 2010
If you are looking for the anime series of 20 episodes then forget it. It would be impossible instead sit back and enjoy it for what it is. Very good film, please ignore the critics.
