I was very impressed with the blog edition of this book. I did not take part in the event but feel it was a very good way of getting a younger generation on board with history. Many soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan have used the internet as a way of writing home or blogging their diaries. Like our earlier generations, also equal in progressing technology, our soldiers would have embraced todays technology as we have.Those of you wishing to continue an interest in this subject should read 'A very unimportant Officer' and 'for love and courage'. These two books have similarities with Harry's war especially the things dear to them, home and home comforts such as food parcels and letters.
I would also suggest reading 'Tommy's war',this particular diary has been written by a chap who couldn't fight and was constantly turned down by the board because of his health. The combined literature creates an extremely good insight into the war and the social problems it causes at home.
I wholeheartedly recommend all these books for the avid history reader as it really does give one an incredible insight to the past.
I know Harry would have been very proud of his grandson for bringing his war and the letters to life 90yrs on....well done and thank you for sharing it with the nation.
A first class read.
I always enjoy books which give personal insights of the conflict, rather than formal historical accounts.
