I have always liked oral histories, and this book is no exception. It is a excellent compilation of first hand accounts from British soldiers in World War I. The battle of the Somme was one of the most horrific battles of all time; the British had over 60,000 casualties in one day.

It is deeply moving to enter the world of the soldiers who fought in these horrid engagements on the Somme. I've visited the battle sites many times before reading "Forgotten Voices", where the fields' surfaces bare few reminders of the great sacrifices men made here. It's heart wrenching to be reminded of their willingness to suffer under poor leadership at the top for principles that grew increasingly abstract as they plodded, crawled, suffered, and lost whatever innocence they possessed before they entered this carnivorous hell. How stunning is the will to survive it!

If you want to get a picture of the horrors of warfare in the trenches of WWI this is certainly the book and told by the survivors of those who fought there.

Our great uncle lost his young life here. Wanted to learn more about this terrible battle that still resonates with tragedy one hundred years later.

Fascinating and chilling. Free from opinion or commentary, just what it was, by those who lived it.
