"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
By concentrating on the minutiae of life in the trenches -- the daily battles with cold and damp, the endless scrounging for food, the frantic improvisation required to carry out impossible orders -- Macdonald manages to convey the sheer craziness of the nightmare.(Sunday Times (London))
Macdonald's narrative, constructed around a succession of remarkable and fresh first-hand accounts, is both compelling and vivid.(Times Literary Supplement)
Macdonald's heart lies firmly with the common soldiers and junior officers who manned the trenches and followed the orders that all too often cost their lives... The reader feels at times that he is actually in the thick of the battle.(Newsday) Book Description:
World War I in the voices of the combatants -- in the year when the war got grim
