      I first read this when I was in the 6th grade, probably along about 1969 or so It was the begining of a lifelong interest in the First World War It took me a long time to get my own copy as it s been out of print for years, but thanks to the internet I finally did It holds a special place in my book collection and is, and always has been my favorite read.
