    Hardcover · Glorious Madness PDF/EPUB Ø glorious ebok, madness mobile, Glorious Madness PDFEPUBI found this book a bit frustrating What I found was slices of life from the great war and stories about individuals battles acts of bravery and 'theatres of war' other than the Western front But I think because the book 'jumped around' from story to story I found it hard to get any momentum when reading it It's a slice of life from an Anglo Irish era of Hunts Big Houses people with double barrelled names and that IS interesting But I struggled to care overmuch about the people with a few exceptionsThe sections about the Dardenelles and Mesopotamia were interesting but so because I knew little about the battles and the 'errors of judgement' than that I cared about the people So it's a good book but it rather passed me by
