Reviews

The great Great War book of our time * * Observer * * Articulates a response to the Great War which many feel, but no one has analysed so scrupulously * * Spectator * * A penetrating meditation upon war and remembrance * * Daily Telegraph * * Dyer is excellent on the different ambitions and effects of municipal memorials, and on photographs and paintings -- Sebastian Faulks * * Mail on Sunday * * A gentle, patient, loving book. It is about mourning and memory, about how the Great War has been represented - and our sense of it shaped and defined - by different artistic media * * Guardian * *
