4.0 out of 5 stars The missing voices, the men who did the job not the idiots justifying why they sent them., 29 Aug. 2013

This review is from: They Called it Passchendaele: The Story of the Battle of Ypres and of the Men Who Fought in it (Kindle Edition)
I have decided that 5* ratings are like A grades in recent exams, they come to easily to convince. This author was recommended to me when I complained that I was fed up with the propaganda of British War films and books which are invariably by an officer, of an officer and for an officer - just as if the other ranks were just inconvenient tools for a difficult job. This book while not silencing the officer class does at least let you hear the other ranks who were there in the mud and bodies. I had it on Kindle and find that some of the words, which I assume are electronically scanned, do not make it although it remains understandable. An excellent author who presents WW1 as experienced by the majority of British, New Zealand, Australian and Canadians would have experienced it.
