Customer Review

on 29 October 2013
This book is more relevant and thought provoking than even seminal works such as Journey's End, because the author lived through everything himself and never seeks to glamourise or sensationalise War. He writes about it as it was for him; Good, bad, sad, humorous, boring, intense, pitiful. He covers every condition and emotion that so many young men must have encountered, often never having the chance or will to relay them to their family and friends. It is an inspiring piece and from a personal point of view poignant beyond belief as it covers (on p55) the sad death of my Great Uncle from British mortar rounds blown off target as he lay in a forward observation post - an all too regular occurance. Guy Chapman's book is a must read for any serious scholar of The Great War.
