This review is from: The War The Infantry Knew: 1914-1919: A Chronicle of Service in France and Belgium (History Greats) (Paperback)
This book was recommended to me by a friend with a similar interest in WW1, we are not experts!
I have read very few books in my life from cover to cover but this book is absolutely enthrawling. It gives a fascinating insight into the life of officers and other ranks in and out of the trenches during WW1, during advances and retreats, time spent at the front and whilst in reserve it paints a picture like no other I have read on the subject, written by a man who wished to take no credit for his actions.
This book is an absolute must for anyone interested in WW1.
