Only My Opinion,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Home in Time for Breakfast: A First World War Diary (Paperback)
As an ex infantry officer I was rather intrigued with this book, they (the BEF)were always told that the war would be short and that they would indeed be "home in time for breakfast". If you view it as literally a diary you will not be disappointed simply because that is exactly what it is, and it is a diary of war. There are days of sheer terror and days of extreme boredom but all carefully recorded by a simple but decent man who happened to survive. I enjoyed it very much.
