3.0 out of 5 stars The Great War through the eyes of soldiers
This is an interesting book if you are wanting to get some eyewitness accounts of the Great War and hear from the soldiers themselves. However, do not get a Kindle version if you are using it for academic study.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read, 17 Feb 2014

The voices from the past are captured so well in Richard Van Emden's book. The brave soldier's who participated in the Great War speak so clearly of their feelings and their fears in this book and is a must read for everyone interested in this dark period.

This review is from: The Soldier's War: The Great War Through Veterans' Eyes (Paperback)
It just amazing and quite humbling sometimes to see it through their eyes. A moving insight into a terrible war.

2.0 out of 5 stars Title says it all, 24 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just a collection of comments from veterans no real thread running through the book. Little in the way of a narrative by the author. Not what I expected. No sense of history of the war. Very disappointed.
