Another great book from Peter Hart
The problem is only 1 vote!
A brilliant Book
Another excellent read. This impeccably researched addition to Hart’s cannon of work captures the essence of the reality of war. The humour balances the horror to convey the mens’ authentic experience. By following the regiment from enlistment, detailing individuals’ personal lives and connections and sharing insight into the impact of the class divisions, the author contributes to our understanding of the human side of conflict.
Peter Hart is a great historian and speaker
