Brings the trenches to life - Excellent!,
This review is from: Drawing Fire: The diary of a Great War soldier and artist (Hardcover)
I bought this on a recommendation and am very glad I did. The book is set out as a facsimile copy of diaries, notes and sketches made by a young soldier-artist during the First World War. I began thinking that this was a book to dip in and out of - but it pulled me in and I ended up reading it from cover to cover. The language, the drawings, the memories bring the horror, boredom, heroics, fear, comradeship, comedy and occasional beauty of the trenches to life. Excellent.
