Are they regarded as a 'reliable' or unreliable account?

There is also a transcription of this book on the website “The World War I Document Archive” http://www.gwpda.org l inked from the section “Primary Resources”, letter B

The Preface by Hugh Walpole says “This is a fine graphic contribution to history---one of the most honest and vivid that we have had”

However, I am unaware of both the selection policy of the World War I Document Archive, and what weight may be placed on Hugh Walpole’s statement.

The book is mentioned in an article/webpage by G R Berridge , Emeritus Professor of International Politics, University of Leceister as “his absorbing memoirs (see Further reading below]” which sounds a positive recommendation.s
