Review:

An engrossing view of what it was like to live in the trenches, go on leave, get wounded, et cetera, and features voice after voice from the ranks ( Telegraph)

Highly readable . . . it transforms the individual soldier into the subject of history and the war itself into a series of intense states of consciousness lived out at the very edge of endurance ( Time Out)

A compelling account of what the war was like for the ordinary soldier (Professor Trevor Wilson)

A novel and arresting approach to the writing of military history (John Keegan New Statesman)
