I wish to declare bias: I LOVE THIS BOOK ! I got it out of our mobile library (yes, there are some still left), went home, started reading it immediately, and by about page 55, a cup of tea and a plate of biscuits later, thought "This is a brilliant book !", got straight on Amazon, and bought it there and then.

Why ?

Another declaration of bias. I was brought up to believe that WW1 was an avoidable, muddy, messy, ineptly run industrial slaughter that was pointless because we had to do it all over again in WW2, which was a "good" war (my grandfathers both fought in WW1 for the whole 4 years, both came home alive, my father fought in WW2) because we had a clear enemy, better equipment, it wasn't muddy, and so on.

Having a history degree (2:1), I am not only interested in History, but can ferret out interesting sources. Personal research soon showed the massive difference between the "Blackadder" view of WW1 and what original sources told me - I had been lied to very spectacularly ! I now have nothing but contempt for the `mythology' of WW1 and those who willingly promote a lie (eg Alan Clark, who admitted in 1997 that "The Donkeys" was based upon a lie).

This book, and others in the series, is the antidote to the pathology that is the mythology. I remain appalled that sensible books, such as this, are not regularly in the top 10 bestseller lists, where they ought to be. The general public is enjoying doing military history, but one wonders what they are reading and why. What is the point in reading a book that merely confirms what you already `know' (ie have been told to believe) ?

This book told me several things I didn't know in the first few pages, which is why I went and bought it.
