Paperback is £5.99 - "This volume is an attempt to rescue from undeserved oblivion a

cluster of soldierly autobiographies; and to give to the general reader

some pictures of famous battles, not as described by the historian or

analysed by the philosopher, but as seen by the eyes of men who fought

in them. History treats the men who do the actual fighting in war very

ill. It commonly forgets all about them. If it occasionally sheds a few

drops of careless ink upon them, it is without either comprehension or

sympathy. From the orthodox historian’s point of view, the private

soldier is a mere unconsidered pawn in the passionless chess of some

cold-brained strategist. As a matter of fact a battle is an event which

pulsates with the fiercest human passions — passions bred of terror and

of daring; of the anguish of wounds and of the rapture of victory; of

the fear and awe of human souls over whom there suddenly sweeps the

mystery of death."

Thanks Op!
Dunno what Xeroc is on about, perhaps prefers War & Peace....

As a rough guide Kindle books take up (very) roughly 2kb per page so xeroc's comment does seem a little odd. Was a picture book expected?
Anyway, cheers Boz for a great book.

Like every large organisation I suspect Amazon not intentionally but sometimes get descriptions wrong.
I often find that CD & Dvd box sets that cover numerous albums or films state that it's 1 disc.
I often have a chuckle when I see that as it's quite impossibe to fit on a single disc. .

If you have iphone kindle app you should be able to purchase and read on your iphone.

You could just ask customer support or

add the the amazon app (not kindle)

amazon.co.uk/gp/…123

This should allow you to at least purchase the book through your account on your iphone whilst
it's still free.

Hope this helps I'm not that familiar with Iphone technology
