A very interesting account
on 31 August 2013
This account moves at some speed giving the same sense of urgency that most have been felt by the senior commanders of both sides. This massive battle is described in some detail and the size of the encounter is sometimes hard to grasp.
I found the constant references to northern flanks,southern flanks and village locations to be rather confusing without a detailed map to view.
I feel the book could have benefited from detailed maps,perhaps dealing with certain aspects of the narrative to aid understanding.
I enjoyed the book and will probably read it again with some Decent maps to hand.
