What an OUTSTANDING book and brilliant research. As a Rugby freak, as my wife calls me, I love anything to do with the subject. I have a large collection of books on Rugby but this will take pride of place. take NO notice of some of the stupid picky comments, sure there were a few spelling mistakes, mostly names, I couldn't find any factual ones and believe me i looked (hate factual mistakes). The book is moving, interesting and how Mr McCrery managed to find all the photographs is beyond me. Really pleased, best gift ever.

It's sometimes hard to appreciate just how devastating the loss of life was in the First World War - the numbers too huge to really comprehend. But Mr McCrery's book does a magnificent job of personalising the tragedy of this period and helping us to understand exactly how shattering this conflict truly was. By reminding us of the great rugby individuals of this period and beautifully describing their skill, their character, their further potential and above all, their number and then revealing the terrible, hateful ways in which they died, Mr McCrery goes a long way towards expressing the utter futility of the war in a way which mere statistics can never truly convey. Highly recommended.

A touching tribute to these men and another well written book by the storyteller McCrery.
Into Touch' is a brilliantly researched book which offers a different and fascinating viewpoint from the war. Brings home some of the sacrifices that so many men made. A great read…I highly recommend this.

Wonderful stories. So much sadness. But it is littered with factual and spelling mistakes. The editor must have forgotten to read it.

This is a lovely tribute to those rugby internationals that died in WWI. A well researched and well laid out testimony to their sacrifice. Thank you.
