    A very well written book. The concept of mixing fictional with a non-fictional context is brilliant. How he connects all the individual characters together throughout is done smoothly. Sometimes the story gets hung up with going into details but it is still a great ride. The way he helps the reader get into the minds if the soldier and what they went through. Books like this are rare and should be read at least once by the enquiring historian.

    Perrett writes well. I constantly found myself deeply involved in the short scenarios. While there was occasionally a heavy emphasis on the technical (not why I picked the book up), this was balanced by some clear insights into the effects of battle on individuals. At the creative level, it was interesting to see Perrett's approach 'at work'. It gave me some ideas about what might work in another project I have in mind. Perrett writes well.
