This review is from: The Advance from Mons 1914: The Experiences of a German Infantry Officer (Helion Library of the Great War) (Hardcover)
Walter Bloems first hand account of his involvement as an infantry officer in a reserve regiment of the German army advancing through Belgium and into France at the start of the First world war, until his incapacity through injury. Just about the only translation of a German text dealing with the actions against the british army in 1914, giving a unique perspective of the campaign.
I found this to be a most informative and interesting read, Bloems previous occupation as a writer has stood him in good stead with his prose. Certainly a must for anyone interested in this period, or with the thoughts and feeling of men under fire.
