I enjoyed reading the book 1914:The Men Who Went to War, as it gave me an opportunity to read about what my Great Grandfather and his younger brother went through while they were in France during those first few months of the war.

The death of the BEF is an incredible tale, and it is hard to imagine anyone laying it out better and with better resources than the Imperial War Museum. The records they have are intelligently present here and the writing is elegant and absorbing.
