Cheerful Sacrifice (Jon Nicholls)

We have invited members of staff to contribute thoughts about their half-term holiday reading and had some really good responses.  Mr Coupe recommends ‘Cheerful Sacrifice’ by Jonathan Nicholls.   He says:

“This is written by a local researcher with an easy yet detailed style and aims to explore the heroism and folly of the Battle of Arras in 1917 on the Western Front. You should experience a detailed read in order to enjoy this book, but there are no troubling footnotes and the learning is worn lightly in the clear style of the author, who is also bass guitarist for one of the UK’s top show bands!”

This sounds fascinating and one for the ‘to read’ list.  I’ll leave it to the musicians among you to discover which band Mr Coupe is referring to…
