Useful Reading!

I have just read Sebastian Faulks novel "Birdsong". There are remarkable parallels with Harry's experiences.

The book has clearly been extensively and meticulously researched.

Harry was involved, in real life, in some of the events used in Faulks' novel. The experiences described by Harry sit very comfortably within the frame work of "Birdsong".

If you're interested in the period, read the book. It's a very good read and fits in well with this blog. As a personal view, I enjoyed the book but was less than convinced by the last few chapters.
