5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 25 Mar. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: To The Last Man: Spring 1918 (Hardcover)
MacDonald has again produced a brilliant book detailing the huge German push in the Spring of 1918. As with her previous books MacDonald gives voice to the veterans of the battles and lets their words describe the events and their part in it. It is as harrowing a story as you will ever read but again the immense bravery and courage of the 'common soldier' shines through. The men who fought and died clearly believed in the cause for which they were ready to lay down their lives, something that the modern selfish generation will have a great deal of trouble believing or understanding. MacDonald's books are a tremendous tribute and testament to the generation of young men and women who fought in the Great War. MacDonald has ensured that 'We Shall Never Forget'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Typically brilliant, 22 Jan. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: To The Last Man: Spring 1918 (Hardcover)
As per Macdonalds previous Great War books, this is superb. Again, it is the detailed survivors accounts that leaves the greatest impression. This time, much of the perspective come from the German side which throws a very different light on commonly held understanding. In the end, we see two sides, both convinced that God was on their side, killing each other until the last man. Each side eventually appears to be as humaine (or not) as the other.
I suggest reading the whole series in chronological order.
