Excellent short story, only real issue it is too short! A real joy to get to know the man but a shame we don't learn more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lived history - excellent read, 26 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A brief snapshot of the human, lived experience. Heart-warming and heart-breaking in equal measure. Although some of the language may have aged, the issues, emotions and thoughts of home could be lifted from the letters of the modern day soldiers at war. Something's endure.

The letters stop the light of life is extinguished, a name on a list and a the father, son and husband is snuffed from the family. The measure of this loss can never be conveyed. May he rest in peace and thank you to his family for sharing the letters.

Lest we forget

5.0 out of 5 stars citizen soldiers, 18 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great read, the detail and personal recollections really made it for me. The folk history of the North East is made richer by the work and the memory of the men of the Tyneside Irish is emblazoned on every page. Ordinary men, engaged in extraordinary deeds. It was an honour to read and remember.

Lest we forget

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking, 16 Oct. 2013

A piece of history and a valuable record. The author has done the greatest service to the men who served and came home; he has listened to their stories. In so doing, he has done greater service to those who did not come home; he has told theirs.

Lest we forget

5.0 out of 5 stars read this if nothing else, 13 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A thoroughly enthralling read, wide ranging, yet intimate. Absorbing and moving. Martin middlebrook puts the human perspective at the core of the story and uses the backdrop of a momentous battle to shape an understanding of the lived experience for future generations. He uses the testament of somme survivors to carve out the record and he has done them proud. Excellent in every respect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read!, 23 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Lucky Break (Kindle Edition)
Enjoyed the book and the chance to glimpse the inner workings of a racing powerhouse. More importantly, Paul comes across as a hard working, honest bloke with a passion for horses and the sport.

Should I ever be blessed with the opportunity to own a horse in training, his team get the job!

This review is from: Seven Troop (Kindle Edition)
Best I've read from the author, leave the stories to the writers, this is a tale of lived experience and the scars are plain, no one should be left in any doubt. A life well lived, thanks.
