An Excerpt From Brave Battalion.The company was completely bunched in front of the wire.

I have read all of Tim cooks books and this book about the 16th Battalion in WW1 was super. Whereas Tim Cook covers the larger story he mentions the 16th several times. Mark takes a focus on a single group and follows them through their battles and covers their glory and pain.
Another great read.
