Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well written and such detailed recall from an Officer who writes several years after the event. This is another volume that adds to our understanding of 'life' at the time on the Western Front.. Although not a frontline Infantry Officer until the final days he paints a vivid picture of that magnificent generation of men who 'did the job' and making us realise that it could probably never be achieved again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and OK, but Throw away when used., 3 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are basically 'Throw Away Units' after use. They are cheap with a myriad of people selling them.....but be warned as they seem to be a Mail order item only. WHY? Well nobody knows exactly who makes them or where.
Suspected Chinese import which does not make it bad, but with an average heating element lifetime of 14mths, try getting a replacement !!!!! None of the many Mail order people carry spare elements and should it fail within a guarantee period, the units are cheap enough to be exchanged, with the old unit being scrapped.
The concept is good but the component suppliers particularly heating elements are distinctly sub standard.

This review is from: The Western Front (Hardcover)
A great read with the broad details explained so well as only Richard did. He stands back one pace from the detail (read Peter Barton for this) and paints the broad picture.
