    Gerry B s Book Reviews4.5 beesReview by Gerry BurnieI have done a fair amount of research into WWI 1914 1918 , and because of this I have developed a real admiration for the young men and women who fought and died in unfamiliar places like Vimy Ridge and Passchendaele It was hell on earth with the mustard gas, the relentless mud, the rotting trench feet, and the barbarity in general, and their sacrifices should never ever be forgotten Because of this, Fallen Snow , by John J KelleyGerr...
