Quite a list thus far,
A recent aquisition was 'For Love and Courage', the First World War letters from the trenches to his wife and family by Lieutenant Colonel E.W.Hermon, their replies are not kept, but from his letters, one gets to know the man and what he is about. Towards the end however, I couldn't read it for several attempts, try as I might, I felt real pain and anguish and yes, tears flowed like rain. I eventually read it after a few weeks of leaving it alone. I have never experienced anything quite like this book, ever, I thought I was fairly immune to sorrow and grief, especially through someone elses family, but, read it if you can without crying like a baby....I can't.
