4.0 out of 5 stars A moving description of life in the trenches, 10 Oct 2009
This review is from: Letters From The Trenches: A Soldier of the Great War (Hardcover)
Lovingly edited by his grandson, Lamin's description of life in the trenches is moving simply because it is so ordinary. His letters contain the mundane and extraordinary, like so many of us who are the grandchildren of these true heros, I found the letters compulsive, humourous and fascinating, and I resisted the temptation to check the end of the book to see whether he survived. This book has given me the push to go to flanders and pay my respects to those of my family, great uncles and cousins who fell in that most horrific of wars.
