Yeh, this is kinda weird to read. It's about the British during the Battle of the Somme, from the German perspective. You do start to think a bit 'oh, just tell me what the Germans were doing'. But quite interesting to see a bit of the other side of the story at any rate. Oh boy have I got rotten hayfever at the moment. I think my head's gonna fall off if I sneeze again. Anyway.... It was pretty interesting, but it's worth having a bit of knowledge RE: the battle of the Somme before you start. Incidentally, we had a question on it during our history exam today, which was kinda neat. I was hoping for one. But I was also hoping it would be the one you could use own knowledge for. Apologies for the ramblingness of this review, but it's a while since I actually read this book and I didn't sleep well at all last night and my hayfever's really bad at the moment. Meh.
Anyway, I think I'd recommend this one if you've the time for it, it was pretty big. But it does help to know a bit about what it's talking about before you start reading it.
