A Book For The Next Century,
By A Customer
This review is from: 1914 : The Days of Hope (Paperback)
This book can be described as coming from another age. However, on reading it you cannot help but feel that it is of the present. It is a distillation of how countries can so easily enter into war, only to find that once they have whipped up immense enthusiasm, they lose control and events overtake them. Into France with all good intensions, to be pushed back to the Marne, and then raced to the Belgian ports. To spend another four years wondering why ............. Absolutely enthralling. Like you are with the men every step of the way. Written in a way as to carry you along with their pride. READ IT AND LEARN.
