I REALLY recommend this book - 'Somme Mud' by E.P.F Lynch

 

 

This book really gave me an insight into what our soldiers went through during the war. I have to admit that I found myself laughting and crying.There has also been a version created for young adults (teenagers).

 

You can purchase this book from any good book seller.
