Siegfried Sasson explores his anti-war attidude which developed during his war service, and the public perception of the conflict seen from a safe distance from the carnage of the battlefield.

This book and the preceding two volumes, should be included in any serious study of european history of the 20th century.

A bit hard going in parts. Not my favourite 1st World War book, but it is very well written. Some beautiful descriptions even in the midst of describing the war.

This Sassoon volume along with Robert Graves are a link with the past, yet written as if they reminiscing in current times. Superb English and grammar and despite the obvious hardships, mental strain, and fears of the time their story fascinates and teaches.
Sassoon sadly cannot be found in contemporary archives, either film or sound whereas Graves can be seen and heard in the BBC archives (Muggeridge interview). Few can have had his experiences during the Great War and his bravery up until his mental collapse is heroic.
