I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. Pen and Sword is always a reliable company, I am sure this book is as good as you say, Olga. But I have so many similar books, and have read many more over the years. Given the current end to the commemorations of WW1, this might be very suitable for younger people to use to explore that war in a one-volume overview.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I know you are well informed on the subject. Pen & Sword have an impressive catalogue and I hope to catch up on some of more of their titles soon. Have a fabulous week.

  3. These volumes will be an important record of a horrific war. We’re in France at the moment where every town and village seems to have commemorations planned for Armistice day. Remembrance is taken very seriously here which is humbling to see

    1. Thanks, Stephanie. They got it right, for sure. We should never forget.

  4. Hi Olga. Sorry I missed this post. This sounds like a very important book. The photos must be amazing. Your review has brought out how chilling that war was. Not a book for the faint of heart. Well done, my friend. Hugs.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. You got it in one. Not for the faint hearted and a very chilling war. Have a great weekend.
