5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening and touching., 13 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Boy Soldiers of the Great War (Kindle Edition)
Richard van Emden has clearly researched this touching and revealing subject very well and produces a fascinating picture of the stark reality which a country faced when attempting to restore freedom and save Europe from the scourge of the Huns. We all have an inkling about boys fraudulently enlisting but this author reveals the big picture of a monumental cover up and denial of the truth, from the recruiting Sergeant and medical officer through the army rank structure and all the way to government. The struggle which rumbled on throughout the war is revealingly described and explains the situation so very well. The scandal is revealed as, well as the heart wrenching stories of some of the many thousands of somewhat misinformed boys who volunteered to fight. They were all heroes and should never be forgotten, in fact a specific curriculum should be devised to teach present day children about their forebears. These boy soldiers contributed so much to the eventual victory and I salute them all. Well done Richard van Emden.
