Críticas:

Laden with knowledge yet sparely written, Covenant with Death is the work of an author immersed in the lives of those who fought ( The Times)

The last line 'Two years in the making. Ten minutes in the destroying. That was our history', ought to be carved in stone somewhere . . . Find it. Read it. You'll be a better person for having done so (Peter Hitchens Daily Mail)

The last line 'Two years in the making. Ten minutes in the destroying. That was our history', ought to be carved in stone somewhere . . . Find it. Read it. You'll be a better person for having done so (The Greatest War Novels of all Time Shortlist)

Covenant With Death . . . showed with unbearable actuality what happened to a newly formed Sheffield regiment on the first day of the battle of the Somme (Christopher Hitchens Guardian)

The blood and guts, the nightmare stink of cordite . . . appalling realism ( The Times)

Only one novel about the war since 1945 has the power and feeling of veracity to compare with the works of the 1920s and 30s . . . Covenant with Death by John Harris ( The Western Front Organisation)

A superb novel ( Daily Mirror)

John Harris's neglected masterpiece of a novel, Covenant With Death, is the success that it is because it follows a group of Sheffield workers from their flag-waving sign-up to the hecatomb on the Somme ( The Atlantic)

True and terrible ( Observer)

An outstanding achievement ( Sunday Express)
