I discovered this book because we chose it with my group in TPE. I think that is a good book in the First World war. I don’t real like the theme about war, because it is always horrible and sad . And this book is horrible and sad but I know just point of view of french people but I don’t know about german people or american people or other. But I don’t read this book again but we must know it.
