"The Dangerous Book for Boys" by Hal Iggulden
This is the first book I touched near me and one
that I love. I cried as I read what I had to write in
this blog. Who knew?!

"This is an extract from it, remembering those who gave their lives for their country.
The second verse is particularly poingant.
They went with songs to the battle, they
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and
They were staunch to the end against

Age shall not weary them, nor the years
At the going down of the sun and in the
We will remember them."
