This isn't a book of grand strategies or international politics, instead it breaks the conflict down into what affected the men everyday in the trenches and behind the lines. Subjects covered include In the Field, Morale and wounds and deaths to name but three and because we hear how these things affected both sides at the same time it gives such a rounded understanding of the events these men endured and suffered.
It is such a moving book because as the same names crop up you start to like them and they endear themselves to you with their simple wants while suffering terrible events and then you see the sentence..."Lt.....was killed the day after writing this" and it brings home the slaughter and death these men faced daily.
It has a stunning selection of photographs throughout the book that bring the stories to life and also make for a beautiful looking book. 100 years after the war this book brings former antagonists together and shows that deep down under all the rhetoric and nationalism the men who fought the war were basically the same scared young men who wanted to make it back home in one piece.
In my opinion an important book!
