    1. A bit different this one - I knew Ivor as a child as a part of our wider family. I know the streets he describes, so his story of the First World War is particularly pertinent.Ivor was too young to join up at the start of the war - although he did volunteer ahead of being conscripted. His diaries cover the time before and during the war until he was demobilised in Feb 1919 but he was as keen to leave the Army as he had been to join up, once all was done.As well as the blood and gore of the actio [...]

    2. I have to admit that I was not totally impartial on this one. Since my grandfather served in the Royal Field Artillery I found it informative and at times thrilling. The only negative issue was it was true to its nature, it was a journal. At times it went into details although fitting for a journal or diary it left the reader board. The five star was earned because the journal itself was well written, otherwise I would have given it four stars.
