5.0 out of 5 stars This was my grandfather, 23 Sep 2010
This review is from: When the Whistle Blows: The Story of the Footballers' Battalion in the Great War (Hardcover)
I inherited some letters from my mother who told me they were from her father who had been killed in WW1. These were from my grand father to my grandmother and covered the period from 1914 through to his capture and subsequent death in 1917. This book filled in so much for me that the sepia tinted photographs that used to be on the family home began to have a meaning for me. As my mother was born 2 months after grandfather died she never knew him but through his letters and the wonderful way Andrew and John have put together the story of the 17th Middlesex I can now appreciate and the life and conditions that these men served in.
