Historical novel

by james w on Jul 22, 2010

good research for presenting a believable story about a volunteer for Britain's efforts in WWI. A sad tale, but much of WWI was a sad waste of young men. Should spur fiction lovers to read some history.

Sherman was wrong. War isn't hell. It's worse.

by rmyork on May 11, 2009

Most of us only have vague memories of WWI from highschool world history class. Barry opens the readers eyes to the horror of that war and the impact it had on the men in the trenches. The reader will understand the saying that a million deaths is a statistic but one death is a tragedy. You probably won't want to read this right after eating, but if you want to know what your history class didn't teach you, you'll read this account to the end. Now, I know what my great great uncle really went through.
