A really good book that reveals the horros of WW I and trench warfare. The beginnig of the book is unclear and confusing, although as you continue to read the book it becomes more clear. The ending is good but also sad, it gives you a sense of what happened during the war and all the casualities that happened.

A look at the experiences of John Kipling, the son of author Rudyard Kipling, during WWI. Like so many other young men, John went off to war with high hopes of serving his country, yet in the end he would pay the ultimate price with his life. Though there are similar, and better, books about the experience of soldiers during the Great War, this book should still be considered as one to read.
