    Very, very good! I took this book based on the reviews it had and i was not disappointed!! It starts off with the story of a young lad working in the mines and then his enlistment into the army and then his subsequent experience in the trenches of the front line of WW1. I thought it may be a bit tame but i was wrong, Stuart Minor is a brilliant writer and has an obvious keen interest in WW1, i don't know his background but i would assume he is a historian of some sort with the amount of detail he Very, very good!

The story is very will written and you end up looking and hating certain characters and miss them when they die, as people do in wars! A very good book and i can't wait to see what happens in the next one as this one finishes on a huge cliff hanger!
