Where does Forgotten Voices of the Great War rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I am a new member, this is my first book downloaded. I first read this book many years ago, but am completly in awe, listening to the actual veterans first hand accounts really brings home the true reality, of the worst conflict in living history. Chaper 30 by George Ashusrt is particually poingant, as he relives Christmas day, Ypres, 1914, in the trenches.
