"A shell-burst of a book" * The Economist *
"An eloquent and painful book... Clark leaves the impression that vanity and stupidity were the main ingredients of the massacres of 1915. He writes searingly and unforgettably" -- George Malcolm Thomson * Evening Standard *
"Mr Clark writes with verve, venom and real feeling for the men whose lives the brasshats squandered" -- Paul Johnson * New Statesman *
"So far from being "just another war book" that it is likely to be bought and read for years to come" -- Vernon Fane * Sphere *
"He is a writer with considerable gifts both of description and narrative. His subject gives them plenty of scope; indeed his descriptions of battles and battlefields are sometimes masterly" -- Michael Howard * Listener *
