This book sounds very interesting! I haven't read a book in this kind of perspective before. Great review!

The book is good especially for those who love fiction and those who love history as it covers both genres

Firstly, I don't like reading books about soldiers or wars because I think I won't understand the story and more so the slow pacing in the first half is another limitation for me. U just read a book which had a slow pacing all through and am trying to avoid a similar situation. Thanks though go the review.

Great review. It is lovely to be able to walk through the war ridden battlegrounds with the soldiers, feel their struggles and pain. Full character development in a book brings it completely to life. This book must be a great read.

This is a great review and the book sure sounds great since it helps us to connect with soldiers and understand what they feel.

The book sounds great but I wonder whether the author should have put more historical facts in it since it is a historical fiction book. Also the slow pace of the book is not something I enjoy reading. Great review though on the book, will try to read the book itself

I don't really understand where the story is leading me to. I did not find anything interesting in it.
