Customer Review

on 26 December 2009
This book does a fine job of chronicling the war of sapper Martin, the trick of this sort of book, is in the editing, and in this respect, Richard Van Emden has done a superb job. There is just enough historical background information to assist the reader, but not so much as to distract from the narrative. Sapper Martin himself comes across as an intelligent man, who was only a private in rank, but never the less, due to his position as a signaler to brigade HQ, he is able to tell us how decision's were implemented, and the ordinary soldiers reactions too them.
This book is much more than a collection of diary entries cobbled together to form a book.
To any body interested in the great war, I can thoroughly recommend this book.
