In the Line of Battle

Gelesen von Lee Smalley

(4,447 Sterne; 47 Bewertungen)

“A COLLECTION OF absolutely authentic accounts by privates and non-commissioned officers.... We see a great simplicity and directness of observation and recital, so admirable that one page of such writing is worth all the folios of the war experts and correspondents, not to say romancers and publicists.” The Athenæum.

“THE HUMAN SIDE, the naked horror and simple glory of actual conflict, is what Mr. Wood’s soldiers are concerned with, and the stories they tell give a clearer picture of this side of war than can be found in any other form.” Pall Mall Gazette.

“A VERY REAL and deeply affecting book, and the editor has done a valuable work in collecting these poignant, odd, whimsical, terrible stories together.” Westminster Gazette.

“NO MAN WHO boasts a heart, least of all any man of young limbs, will read these soldiers’ simple stories without a quickening of the pulse. They are at once a great stimulus and a great memorial.” Daily Telegraph. (6 hr 34 min)

Mostly propaganda not a fair account. No soldiers were wholly innocent or wholly evil. It was men fighting for there lives.
