Memoirs of the first World War composed from a soldiers letters home. It captures some things very well, the confusion, the initial optimism, the importance of a strong cup of tea or coffee and of a good meal but above all how extraordinary things become ordinary in times of war. There's a lot of "Rode from A to B, met a column of xxxxx on the road" in this book without a sense of narrative to give it purpose or significance. Interesting but not riveting
