4.0 out of 5 stars Generic in parts but very readable
This book presents a good overall picture of that unique event,a trench raid. The historical content is accurate and the photos present a good picture. what does let it down slightly,if you read a lot of military history,is that some parts are fairly generic- a shame as overall I would rate this book quite highly.
Do not let my niggles put you off though,overall I...

1.0 out of 5 stars Missing so much
A review of the methods of trench raiding that left me with the distinct impression the author knew nothing of the subject apart from what he had gleaned from a training manual. Don't read this book if you want to know more than the theory.

Rather shorter than I anticipated but gave clear view of the role and function.of these teams who developed valuable skills. and knowledge which have been further adapted into our AD
. It ids however with sadness that the losses heavily outweighed the gains in hat if the trench Watergate hadn't developed perhaps the war would have been shorter with not so great a loss of. life as actions like the Somme and Paschendale to name but a few clearly demonstrates,

4.0 out of 5 stars Like toy soldiers, 10 Sep 2012
This review is from: Brave Men: Allied Trench Raiding in the First World War (Kindle Edition)
This is a good insight into the realities of trench warfare as conducted in WWI. It shows the stark realities of existence and death, combined with the brave and self-sacrificing outlooks of the soldiers involved.
It also shows the total disregard for human life of the commanders and their main object of using these men simply as morale boosters for the rest of the army.
One criticism - the book could have been longer.
