These little slice-of-life war stories have told me more in a few minutes than The World Wars told me in an hour. … All good stuff and an object lesson in how a tiny part can speak for the whole.
– From Greg Dixon's NZ Herald review of the Great War Stories series, 9 August 2014
He is more than a friend, he is part of the soldier’s very life.
– Colonel CG Powles
He who has once ridden into action with bullets whistling past his ears and the shells bursting around him will never forget his horse, how the good stead became verily a part of his body: a glorified body that carried him whither soever he willed.
– Colonel CG Powles
