Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Quick and the Dead: Fallen Soldiers and Their Families in the Great War (Paperback)
Richard Van Emden does it again. What an incredibly informative read with such detail within the book. Many highlights which bring me to think of my own Great Grandfather who was killed in 1917 leaving a wife and 3 children.
This book illustrates life for everyone effected by death from the soldiers to the family at home. Absolutely incredible read.
I have always enjoyed Richards books but this seems to top some of the best writing. In fact I would probably say this for all of Richards Van Emdens books.
Presented in a mannor and context that is easy to understand.
