Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Drawing Fire: The diary of a Great War soldier and artist (Hardcover)
Having read 100s of books on WW1, I can honestly say that this is up there amongst the best. Not a scholarly analysis of tactics but a soldier's own record of his life during the conflict. There are long periods of boredom; there are graphic descriptions of hand-to-hand fightling and the loss of friends. What makes it stand out is the plethora of drawings and sketches by the author which bring life to his written descriptions. These and the photographs and newspaper cuttings which he kept and pasted into his original book.
I would highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in the period - you won't be disappointed.
