,B.Attached is a book review from 1930 written by war poet Robert Graves (pictured on the right) covering the World War I memoir A Brass Hat in No Man's Land, by the British General F.P. Crozier. Graves was surprised to find that a senior officer should have written such a book and came away liking it very much: "It is the only account of fighting on the Western Front that I have been able to read with sustained interest and respect." Crozier's memoir did not spare the reader any details involving the nastier side of the war; he reported on "trench suicides", self-inflicted wounds and mutinies:
"[General F.P. Crozier] deliberately taught blood-lust to his recruits and fed them with lying propaganda, knowing it to be a lie, 'to corrode their kindly minds with bitter-sweet vice and keep them up to the vicious scratch.'"
