a beautifully written book. deserves all the praise it gets. very disturbing account of trench warfare. I think that it downplays the class consciousness of the soldiers a bit, even though there are significant tracks about how the war doesn't seem to benefit anybody, the imperial reasons for the war are never delved into.
