5.0 out of 5 stars Goodbye!, 23 Feb 2013
An outstanding recollection of life during the Great War. It is so helpful for those who wish to attempt to think constructively about 'the war to end all wars', to read about how those involved at the time felt and thought. We have heard so much from those who would characterize all involved as deluded. It is good to be reminded of the real challenges the army faced and the camerarderie felt towards those they served with.

A first class read.

John Terraine writes as an enthusiast as well as a scholar. His account is very well written and provides a gripping account of the valour as well as the confusion as the main enemy force met a highly professional, but small army of only 5 divisions. Inevitably confusion was a major element on both sides in the very fluid early days.Often the valour of small groups operating almost independently was all that stood between defeat and victory. By the time the remnants had rached the Marne, the German plan had been defeated and the 'Old Contemptibles' had ceased to exist. It is a compelling story.
