Default 'War Is War'

Written under the pseudonym of 'Ex-private X', Alfred McLelland Burrage, both treats us to, and appals us with his experiences in the Artists Rifles, during the Great War.

Often humorous, sometimes shocking, occasionally heart-breaking, his easy writing style, irreverent sense of humour, and arresting candour combine to form 'War Is War' into a work which I consider to have been ahead of its time.

Thanks to Chris 'Drew' for putting me on to this book - I was chuckling and recoiling throughout... sometimes both before I reached the end of a page.

Please read (if you haven't already) it's a must.
