A War Story by an Ordinary Soldier That Deserves to be Read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fighting Through: From Dunkirk to Hamburg- A Green Howards Wartime Memoir (Hardcover)
Bill Cheall's story is a remarkable one, in that it is written with compassion. His story shows us that the companionship found within the regiment provided the bond that enabled the men to endure many hardships, much danger, sudden death, injury, - and lengthy periods of routine and training.
The book is an absorbing one, and is highly readable. It is valuable in providing a picture of war seen from the point of view of an ordinary soldier, and is a story that every member of the Forces should be encouraged to read. But the story, being a very human one, should be read by others as well.
