The Platoon: An infantryman on the Western Front 1916-18

Good evening

Just reading 'Drawing Fire' by Len Smith of the 7th Londons - excellent read by the way - and looking as ever for another 'soldier's voice' type book. I know only recently published but has anyone read or is reading 'The Platoon' yet, if so, any good as thinking of getting it? Front cover suggests it is about a Kensingtons soldier and I am interested in the London Regiment during the Great War.

If not thinking of getting 'Four Years on the Western Front' by Aubrey Smith of the LRB

Many thanks

Just went on Amazon to order Drawing Fire, and if you click on the book it opens page with details of book, scroll down and there is a list of similar titles that might float your boat. Regards Sean

Four Years on the Western Front is well worth getting hold of IMHO.
