The book is broken up well into chapters and parts of the walk. It's a shame kindle isn't map and illustration friendly though, to give a pictorial guide to journey. Another failing of book is that it could provide more of a perspective from the French and German side.
Would definitely recommend War Walk to students, as it touches upon many aspects of the narrative of the Western Front without being tainted by bad history. The book has enough depth and richness to offer something to the more knowledgeable First World War historian too.
There are better books out there on WWI, but perhaps none so accessible or useful as starting point.
It's a must-read book for anyone interested in the subject. Doubtless hundreds of titles will be coming out over the next year or so to mark the 100th anniversary of the conflict. Readers should start with Nigel Jones' account, however, to add a sense of place and context to their understanding of what happened.
Along with John Keegan's First World War this is as good a place to start as any on the subject.
The lack of maps is slight frustration, but not a serious one.
