I am not a Colonel, but if I were, I should want John Baines in my regiment. From these leters he emerges ever optimistic, savouring joy where he can find it in the midst of the horrors of war, and being at all times positive. His grandchildren (the editors) have enlivened the text with fascinating information about the First World War, always informative and interesting, and at times daunting. The book is most uplifting.’ – Hugo Vickers, historian and author. Paperback. Published by Helion & Company Limited 2015
