I really enjoyed this - beautifully written in a style of english which is now a thing of the past, but the language is very evocative of the period it covers. The writer's style of making the extraordinary things that happen to him and his colleagues seem routine adds to the poignancy of the book. The book finishes suddenly - I would have loved to find out what happened to the author and the characters in the book, after the war ended. It's not a history book, but is more like a diary of one man's experience in the war.
