This is a beautifully produced little book, giving one-paragraph descriptions and colour photographs of fifty items of relevance to "Tommy", the British soldier of WW1. "What Tommy took to war" covers everything from his cap to his spoon, his boots to his shaving kit. Each is well described with background information and all in all it is an engaging read. A few of the items would not really taken to war by Tommy (his medals, for example, or the dreadful letter his family received when he became a casualty) but that is a detail. Produced on very nice glossy paper and with splendid photos, the book would be a nice little gift. It appears to be aimed at the general reader rather than the family or military historian, but even the most "anorak" of subject specialists will find a few facts and points of which they were previously unaware.

Quite a useful little reference of Tommy`s artifacts that he took to the Great War. Sadly the author still cannot tell the difference between an East Kent`s ( Buffs ) Cap Badge and a Queens Own Royal West Kent cap badge. Mostly likely as much of the text is a direct lift from a previous book of his as a Haynes Manual that came out recently. On the whole, OK.

Excellent book - a good visual and interpretive introduction to the subject, and a great set of photos and explanations for those who know the subject well. One to buy for anyone who's interested in the Great War.

The book itself is a bit basic but does contain some good photos and some good bits of information
