I think that we should have more of this sort of book, and the politians should read them before they decide to take us into
any more wars. I don't think that I could have put up with what Stan Whitehouse and his pals had to, there is too much use of the term 'Hero' in the press these days to describe sport and athletics players. No they are not heroes, Stan Whitehouse and all the other Infantrymen are, in fact anyone who saw active service in WW2 is.
The biggest compliment I can give it, is my father ( god rest his sole ) who experienced very similar situations read it and thought it a very accurate account of what the real war was like .I promise you wont be able to put it Down!
This book should be shown not only to every schoolchild but to every detractor of what the soldier has done to protect our freedoms over the last century or so. If I never read any other book for as long as I lived, I would still feel privileged to have read 'Fear is the Foe'
