5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible book, 12 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This brought tears to my eyes on many occasions. How Stephen was able to select those men for 'team' is the mark of a good writer, although I suspect that he would given the same care and attention to any he selected. This is a tremendous read. I couldn't put it down as we went through both the prewar rugby matches and the Great War. You don't have to be a rugby fan to appreciate this because it is so well written that it would keep even the casual reader engrossed. It is well worth it's award.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read., 12 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having listened to Stephen give a talk on the First World War I wanted to read his books myself. This is the follow-up to his 2013 award winning book and is equally as good with the main focus being the First Rugby World Cup. It was an engrossing read covering all the countries who participated and is a timely reminder that rugby is a universal game and so it war. The sacrifice from all countries needs to be recognised and this book does it superbly with a wealth of detail that has the power to fascinate and inspire. You certainly don't have to be a rugby fan to appreciate this book because it is about people, and often some of the very best.

5.0 out of 5 stars It does the job!, 24 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was a bit fiddly putting together and it came with adaptions that weren't needed which was a shame and wasteful but it did the job. The budgie ate through the wire of the last one. It came with various attachments to fit onto the end whether you needed a two pin or three pin connection and this is what I found fiddly but that could.be me. It works as the old one did and so is a good buy.

The First Day on the Somme (Penguin Classic Military History)
The First Day on the Somme (Penguin Classic Military History)
by Martin Middlebrook
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have book, 6 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a superb book on a topic that will be on everyone's lips next year. Other books will appear but I doubt whether will come up to the scholarly presentation of this book. Also the others which follow will pay homage to it but few will equal it. I got mine for a ridiculously cheap price of 1p paying far more on the standard postage.
