I think the fact that day by day you can read how Leslie Buswell became more and more aware of the futility of trench warfare....and the war itself.. makes this book even more interesting. There are some very interesting stories about the trenches..one moment they are swapping cigarettes with the Germans or going over to have a chat with them in the 'enemy's' trench and the next moment shooting at each other. Very surreal. It is very descriptive, so you can imagine yourself there, and feel yourself feeling and seeing the very same things as the author. (There are some drawings also he drew in the book of things he saw around him) Very interesting
