WWI Hidden Battle,
This review is from: TUNNELLERS (Paperback)
This piece was written by one of the officers who had fought this tortured war.
It is firsthand description of the minutiae of this mining madness.
A man of his times, Captain Grant describes the most horrific events underground in a clear and almost dispassionate way that helps to tell the story so lucidly. It increases the wonderings at Man's contrasting facets; his murderous intent v his magnificent courage and compassion.
Read this detailed account of a war without precedent in a description that carries far more drama than any manufactured prose by such novels as Birdsong.
Be inspired by the quiet determination to do one's duty for Queen and Country in a world unsullied by Human Rights or Health and Safety.
A fine tribute well worth reading and adding to your library.
I shall be taking it with me on my visit to the sites
