As with most books concerning the personal experience of the Great War you can only be thankful that the post WW2 generations have never had to suffer as Reid's did, there is some consolation that they forced a defeat on the enemy allowing the Entente to claim a bloody, but never futile, victory.

Offers an insight and expresses an understanding of the mind-set of the teens and twenties budding gentlemen who marched off to the Great War, rather than a profession. Quietly challenges the reader to consider what they might have done had they been born a generation or two earlier.

This book had very little to do with the actual war. I found it boring in the extreme. Most certainly not worth the money. The writer to my mind was showing what a Scottish historian he likes to think he is.
