O knihe

An indispensable account of the Western Front

There are several accounts of the experiences of men during the Great War which have been recognised as exceptional, have been highly acclaimed and have entered the ranks of classic war literature. There are many more eyewitness accounts of more humble literary reputation which are nevertheless still invaluable as historical chronicles. These inevitably become-in most cases-less well known. Rarely does one discover a work-probably unknown to many-that is all one could hope for as a memoir of a life lived during wartime but which at the same displays the craft of penmanship, the sensitivity, creativity and depth of observation of places, events and personalities that defines great writing. This book-the experiences of an officer of the Coldstream Guards on the Western Front-is such a book. Scenes of life behind the lines, in the trenches and during the assault of battle are graphically related making it a truly indispensable volume for anyone interested in the war the infantry knew. Highly recommended.
