Much better than expected!,
This review is from: War Story (CASSELL MILITARY PAPERBACKS) (Paperback)
Didn't expect this to be as good as it is. It steadily grew on me....as does the transformation in the central character's outlook on the futility of their war. Almost reads like a WW1 'Catch 22' in many ways.
Written with well-formed and believable characters throughout, the steady loss of which throughout the narrative conveys the tiniest of senses (if it were at all possible) to the reader of what that tragic generation must have endured. This book will stay in my mind for some time, and I will definately read others by Robinson.
