DESCRIPTION: This a fresh and engaging impression of war as though the soldier 
had just returned on leave and been asked what things were like in the trenches. A 
memoir is always a personal matter and this one presents terrible conditions as 
they were commonly seen by a soldier  Most Highly Recommended

The way in which this soldier has told his tale is moving, heart-rending, but curiously optimistic. It is the way one soldier might recount a tale to someone who had also been in battle, or the close family when returned on leave. It makes this one of the most readable accounts of war and a war that was one of the most terrible in history.

This is a very human story that should be enjoyed by a wide readership.
