An unusually worthwhile listen.

I have a reasonably good lay knowledge of the political & military history of WW1: the archduke, trench warfare, etc. But this firsthand account by a British war correspondent who experienced the whole thing from beginning to end provides a much more personal and up-close account. Very worthwhile, and wonderfully written and performed.

Haunting and tragic

This story gave me chills and saddened me to know how foolish people could be in the name of patriotism.

Incredible

This is the best narrative of the first world war I've read to date, man's inhumanity and also his humanity is brought home, brutal, gritty and also very moving, brilliantly narrated, I recommend this book highly.
