a marvellous collection -- Arifa Akbar * Independent *
it is the pain, suffering and confusion that dominates this impressive work, the reality of warfare summed up by Private Frank Cocker, who wrote from the front in 1915 following the loss of his brother, "My heart is so stunned I don't know whether it is broken or not." * Daily Express *
It is very much the First World War anthology for our time. * Evening Standard *
