Local Government Officer, listens to audiobooks whilst commuting, loves Biographies of quintessentially English eccentrics.
A fabulous book, beautifully written and skillfully delivered by this enchanting author. The book moves very quickly and packs in lots of information. I listened to it twice and the second time, I picked up a lot of the detail I lost in the first reading. David speaks beautifully and his charm exudes throughout. A book I will surely enjoy listening to again. I would wholeheartedly recommend this book!
Funny, honest, interesting and excellently read! A social documentary of our times and an honest insight into an amazing life.
This book delivers the personal stories from the excited camaraderie of "Pals" together, proudly having signed up for an adventure, to the filth and fear experienced being shipped to France in cattle trucks and everything that followed. Very moving! I could imagine the experience and it made me feel glad to be warm and cosy at home.
