5 Quite Simply The Best Book on the Great Warjamie1370 | 16/06/2008 | See all jamie1370's reviews (12)This book has remained with me years after I first read it. I remember almost all of it simply because it is so moving. it is not overly emotional and is completely impartial which adds to the impact of those re-telling their own experiences, not just the men who fought on all sides but women and those that were still children at the time too! The best kind of historial re-telling because it's by those that were there. A must read.
