Reviewed in the United States on October 17, 2013
I had this book referred to me by a dear friend who knew I was interested in WWI and European History. I must say, that I was totally amazed by what I learned about the people who suffered through this period of history, as well as the actions of ordinary soldiers on both sides of the conflict. It is the first book that I have read that tells a story of how the French citizens dealt with the war in their own towns, and the specific lives of several solders who were unfortunate enough to be caught up behind the lines. Between some good news, and some bad, you will not only learn much from this book, but will find it very difficult to set aside till the next time.
