The author...has admirably handled a wealth of information to capture an element of the First World War that could be overlooked in this centenary year...Superb photos accompany the accounts.

Charlie 'Ginger' Byrne records his memoirs, warts 'n all, and has no fear of telling the mundane and the humorous along with the brave and horrific. From lice to nasty corporals, from bacon and dripping to the Chinese Labour Corps, Byrne crams it all in and leaves you educated and fascinated with details I have never had the privilege to read before. ... This is a true soldiers tale, quick-paced, funny, sad and probably one of the best books I've picked up and read this year.
