Lived history - excellent read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ONE MAN'S WAR: Letters from a Soldier Killed at the Battle of Loos (Kindle Edition)
A brief snapshot of the human, lived experience. Heart-warming and heart-breaking in equal measure. Although some of the language may have aged, the issues, emotions and thoughts of home could be lifted from the letters of the modern day soldiers at war. Something's endure.
The letters stop the light of life is extinguished, a name on a list and a the father, son and husband is snuffed from the family. The measure of this loss can never be conveyed. May he rest in peace and thank you to his family for sharing the letters.
Lest we forget

I have recently purchased this book on kindle and am halfway through, for me this gives an insight of the true horror of the battle of Loos more so as my great uncle Frederick was killed during this battle he was only 25yrs old so far an excellent read.
