This is an amazing book. It's detailed, oh so detailed, and written in a way that makes it an engaging read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rigorous and highly readable, Dec 26 2012

This review is from: At the Sharp End: Canadians Fighting the Great War 1914-1916 (Paperback)
I read a lot of military history, and I've come to know that many military historians are BORING writers. Pierre Berton is great, but Tim Cook is maybe better; equally readable while not as rah-rah-rah. This book - and its equally excellent sequel - break the mold. This book is a well-written, brilliantly researched account of a neglected history. Cook doesn't just talk battles, he talks people, lives and society in the trenches. Don't be put off by the length; it's worth your time.
