Very interesting.

A very good insight to a fruitless battle, with huge loss on both side. Great breaking in places at the senseless loss of lives.

A bit disappointed with this audiobook. I bought it as my late uncle was actually there. The music that was offputting as was the accents used for eyewitness accounts.
