Product description

Review

"Thanks in part to Davidson's cracking narrative - he uses the present tense throughout so that one gets a real sense of immediacy - and in part to some remarkable photos, with the changing faces of the soldiers telling their own story of seeping morale and growing desperation, this is a deeply affecting account of men struggling to keep hold of their sanity amid a ceaseless round of daily horrors." --Daily Mail

"Told in a gripping style by his grandson Andrew, [Fred's War paints] an intimate snapshot of history that puts the Great War firmly into focus." --The Express

"An incredible story." --The Scottish Express

"Secret shots from the Great War." --The Telegraph

"A treasure trove of photographs offering a unique insight into the grim reality of life in the trenches." --Press and Journal, Aberdeen

"Using an inspired and original concept, [Andrew Davidson] blends 250 original photographs with a crisp, contemporary narrative to give us a new and amazingly intimate perspective on the danger, hardships and playful camaraderie of a dismal, deadly battlefront. If you only buy one book about the war, make it this one." --Pendle Today

"I thoroughly enjoyed this book, which would make a fine present for anyone with a passion for early photography, for personal stories of trench life, or with an interest in early military medicine. It's also a rare example of a war memoir/biography that even the war-jaded and squeamish can enjoy without fear." --Vulpes Libris, blog
