Death's Men: Soldiers of the Great War
Moving, vivid, shocking and above all real, this is a stunningly recorded distillation of the soldiers' own personal experiences during the First World War. Accessing both the private worlds of the individual and providing a more panoramic historical and political backdrop, Denis Winter brings to life a grim and amazing period of history.

An excellent book, but very sobering. Based almost exclusively on memoirs, private letters and newspaper articles, it relates the British experience of WWI on the Western Front from the view of the individual soldier. It's not a history of the war, nor does it cover the British army the way that Richard Holmes did in Tommy. Very highly recommended with the caution that the details of suffering and death in the book might be disturbing to some readers.
