Lucid and comprehensive-a vivid essay on wartime blunders and the post-war bluster that tried to hide them -- Charles King * Times Literary Supplement *
Exhaustively researched and scholarly-an exciting story and one that benefits from accounts written at the time by various soldiers and observers -- Beryl Bainbridge * Guardian *
Between these covers you will find a wholly unpretentious, terrifyingly honest breakdown of a war-exceptionally harrowing and impossible to put down -- Mick Middles * Manchester Evening News *
Ponting is both incisive and original in his account of what contemporaries called the "Russian War" -- Michael Kerrigan * Scotsman *
