Review: HOLDING THE LINE by Sergeant Harold Baldwin

Victoria Janssen recently read and reviewed Holding the Line by Sergeant Harold Baldwin for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s an excerpt:

More than once, Baldwin emphasizes the physical strength needed to be a soldier and specifically states what great shape he was in after hauling equipment on long marches and, later, training to be a message runner. His rhetoric reminded me a bit of modern men’s fitness magazines. He also shares anecdotes that are humorous at his own expense, which could alleviate any idea that he is boasting; that might be a narrow line to walk, when he expected skeptics to be reading his work.
