I thought No Man’s Land extraordinary for the searing, clear-eyed honesty of its approach. The simple but skilled construction creates an enormous accumulation of tension and foreboding towards an inexorable and heart-breaking conclusion. In obsessively reanalyzing the appalling, sometimes criminal foolishness of World War I, we may too easily dismiss the great hearts that fought it. This book will help us appreciate them afresh. Robert MacNeil, PBS news anchor.

As a Newfoundlander, I had learned about the battle of Beaumont Hamel and the Royal Newfoundland Regiment, but this book painted a vivid picture of the battle in my mind.
