Book Mole: Ghost Road
Book Mole, Larry Bowlden, reviews Pat Barker's award-winning "Ghost Road." It's the third in a trilogy about World War I. Larry explains:
"This is not a glorification of war book. Instead, it talks of the the war and battlefield in graphic and horrible detail that shows the bravery of the men who fought, but also the corruption of the British class-system and the money-interests of big business, especially as the war drags on long after it should have - with men dying not to the secure the victory, but to line the pockets of businessmen who are more interested in profits than the lives of soldiers."
