Customer Review

on 16 March 2007
This must be amongst the very best books to emerge from 1914-1918. What it has that many memoirs do not is a certain objective detachment, where it is needed, and an ability to bring together a number of first hand sources and accounts to create a rounded picture. You get to know something about context - and still get a stiking impression of 'what it was like'. Sassoon, Graves, Richards etc are all vivid and wonderful to read, and would all be recommended: but for the most part they lack this valuable three dimensionality. Conversely 'straight' regimental histories can get very dry - 'The War the Infantry Knew' manages to get the best of both worlds. Highly recommended, and great value.
