The Times Literary Supplement No. 6256

Looking into the visitors’ book at a cemetery on the Somme, Adam Hochschild began his history of the First World War, To End All Wars, with the question, “Why does it bring a lump to the throat to see words like sleep, rest, sacrifice when my reason for being here is the belief that this war was needless folly and madness?”. One life story helps provide an answer.
