Centenary News Review:
'During the First World War 302 British and Commonwealth soldiers were executed at the Western Front. Although this number seems unimaginably high to the modern reader, this is in fact a much smaller number than it could have been and amounts to roughly one in ten of those condemned. This book would be an excellent starting point to the subject and includes reference to works that go into further detail should it be of interest.'
