An engaging book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Passchendaele (Hardcover)
This is a brick of a book crammed with information and photos (one or two photos per page). There are a hundred or so testomonies and letters as well as maps and diagrams. As a military artist I buy many books from Amazon for research, I can normally tell with a quick flick through the book on unwrapping whether it is going to be useful or not, this book passed that test with flying colours.
The only niggles with the book are that it should have been larger - it's rather narrow which means that some of the photos have been re-produced a bit too much on the small side. The author has also chosen to go metric, which is just annoying in this kind of book.
Almost the perfect history book.
