Really enjoyable! The author skilfully weaves several well-researched strands into a gripping and fascinating narrative. The book is profusely illustrated with contemporary photographs and colour reproductions of the war artists' work. The lively and fluent style carries the story forward with relentless purpose, and the commentary on the paintings and drawings themselves is very perceptive. Finishing this book was like saying goodbye to old friends!
