As soon as this book appeared on my list from Amazon i began to read the reviews. It had great reviews and it was presented by the Imperial WarMuseum.
Could not wait for it to arrive. When it did, what struck me was the sheer weight of the book. That was where my expectations came to an abrupt end. Once opened. I found all pictures to be landscape, which means that half the page is blank. Then there are the many blank pages, Why??? Extremely disapointed and i am sorry to say, a waste of money. There is a very, very good book available at 'The Works' that i consider to be more informative and interesting at a greatly reduced price of £6.99. I have since purchased 'The Definitive Book of World War One' published by D&K. Extremely good book that is always presented by these publishers. Whilst it cost more than £6.99, it was far cheaper than 'The Great War'
I have offered limited information and appreciate that all these books cover a period of extreme sorrow and wanton waste of lives but cannot help but feel that i have been 'conned' in my purchase of 'The Great War.
