Riassunto: Based almost entirely on the accounts of eyewitnesses and survivors, told in their own words, and on new or little-known letters, diaries, official reports, and papers, the author weaves together an engrossing and moving picture of what it was like to fight in the British Army in 1914.
From Library Journal:
Macdonald recounts the experiences of the British Expeditionary Force in World War I. This brief period saw the destruction of Britain's prewar army, which suffered casualties in excess of 90 percent. The text is interspersed with accounts by survivors. These, coupled with a vivid narrative style, are the book's strengths. The attention paid to the civilian's plight is also commendable. The causes of the war and broader issues of strategy have been covered in much greater depth elsewhere. The author focuses on the common soldier's point of view. A good account for the general reader.
