Book Review – Temporary Heroes, Lieutenant Norman Cecil Down



In any centenary year, publishers churned out books in commemorate the date. The outbreak of WWI in 1914 has been no exception. With few exceptions, this event has produced a fine selection of books and even where one campaign of one battle has been covered by several authors, each has offered fresh insight and provided a valuable additional book. This book fits into this situation. It is a most enjoyable book and provides a refreshingly different approach.

Illustration is confined to an appendix with cartoon sketches. A great read
