Overview

For a memoir of World War I, Sir John French's book 1914: The Early Campaigns of the Great War, does a fairly good job of recounting the facts, however skewed they may be. French, whose full name and titles are quite daunting, was Field Marshal John Denton Pinkstone French, 1st Earl of Ypres KP, GCB, OM, GCVO, KCMG, ADC, PC (1852 - 1925). He was Commader-in-Chief of the BEF (British Expeditionary Forces) against the German advances through Continental Europe. French, who was stubborn and hotheaded, ordered maneuvers which weren't the best course of action, for which he was eventually switched out for another commander.

Though he was the obvious choice for Commander-in-Chief at the time, French was fighting a 20th century war with a 19th century mindset. Images of him at the time portray him mounted on horseback, a billowing feather in his hat... meanwhile the tanks and tear gas are just over the horizon. Thus, this book is not a fair and balanced account of the British forces under French's command, but it does describe one man's battle through the "fog of war," while offering many up-close and personal insights into the actions and dispositions of the soldiers of the Great War.

    what you think of my book? FYI the title is " Life and Lies of a Demon

    I lay in bed as the smell of breakfast begins to fill the house. I have to wake up, I tell myself. I get out of bed and head downstairs to the kitchen. I step through the door and instantly greeted by my dog Max."Hello Max, how are you today?" I say. I begin wrestling with Max until my little brother, Riley, comes down to breakfast.

    Emily/Emma glances at Luke, biting her lip. She struts over carefully, her breasts bouncing slightly as she walked. She pulls herself to sit on his lap, "Hey."

    Please, stop. I am a big Warriors fan, when I checked out the reviews, I was horified when all i saw were s.. ads and forcemating stuff. I am nine years old, and what I see now is disgusting and sick. I just want you let all of you know... there are kids out there that learn from what they see. You might even be doing it with an eleven year old! So please, please stop for the sake of little kid's sanity. ~Caitlin, a nine year old in fourth grade
