" ... Glum Heroes confirms our admiration for the Western Front soldiers. It is neither 'feel-good' nor a quick and easy read, but is recommended to all serious students of the Western Front." --Soldiers of the Queen
"Anyone who has ever been in uniform will recognise many of the traits and coping methods described. Most highly recommended, and far beyond just students of the First World War."--Society of Friends of the National Army Museum
