I can't speak high enough of this book. Whether you are a history buff or merely curious about such a brutal time in our history, you will not be disappointed! The massive amount of research Whithorn put into this factually based ode is his tribute to all those men, of every nation, who died in The Great War. You'll learn exactly what it felt like to be on the front lines, and what it felt like to lose a loved one in this war where chivalry existed among horrible brutality. I'd give it 6 stars if I could, just because of the sheer amount of the author's heart he put into this labor of love.
