    I really enjoyed this book It's a beast to get through and it's taken me most of the month to read but it was definitely worth it It's a side to the Great War that we don't get to see in most documentaries and the like I was swept up into the stories of these people I wish there had been full letters Basically I'm itching to read a full collection of letters I cried when people died and I smiled when others were reunited I became attached to these people of the past even the ones I found annoying at first It was also an eye opener as to how the people of the upper and middle classes just seemed to carry on as if there wasn't even a World War happening while the workinglower class went to fight Really interesting insight into the War and the people who were affected by it More people should be reading this book
