|About the Book|
A complex and fascinating read- an account of a doctors experiences the wounded and dying in a French hospital. Very much of a time, and, as the 1930 edition I have suggests, written from a place of pain and anger. Certainly something that needs reading in context. Whilst not the sort of book that could be described as an enjoyable read, its nonetheless a worthwhile one, and its an era Ive inherited a lot of books from, so doubtless will have further contemporary reads to compare and contrast this with. Its always difficult not fall back into History GCSE-mode when I read this sort of thing, which, on the plus side, is a decent mode to be able to return to.
