an excellent read,
This review is from: Home in Time for Breakfast: A First World War Diary (Paperback)
I highly recommend this book. This is a day to day diary evoking all the smells, horror and mundaneness of war. A fascinating read, so interesting; as among all the horrors are the simple things that Stuart Chapman did, like going to explore villages or going to the cinema, things that would not have occurred to me happened in a war situation. Each time I read it I find something new to ponder on. Stuart Chapman's experience of hunger, exhaustion , at times fear and "getting on with the job" brought up a mixed bag of emotions - at times funny, at times sad, at times filled with horror.
