5.0 out of 5 stars All creatures great and small..., 5 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Tommy's Ark: Soldiers and Their Animals in the Great War (Hardcover)
I've always enjoyed everything written by Richard van Emden and Tommy's Ark is no exception. Although a relatively untouched subject from the 14-18 war, it would have been easy just to focus on the obvious horses, pigeons, canaries, mice and mules, but the sheer breadth of wildlife covered in Tommy's Arks is just astounding. Painstaking reseach as ever is a given, but it is really the human-touch of weaving the often deeply-moving stories into the wider experience which is the book's absolute joy and strength.
Tommy's Ark will appeal to a wide range of readers: anyone interested in the Great War but also has a general appeal. An ideal Xmas present for anyone, I would say. The recipient won't be disappointed!
