Dat hebben we gehad behoort tot de absolute hoogtepunten uit de literatuur over de Eerste Wereldoorlog. Dichter Robert Graves beschrijft zijn persoonlijke ervaringen aan het front, die tekenend zijn voor de Britse soldaten in de Franse en Vlaamse loopgraven. Behalve een verslag van het oneindig bloedvergieten, de wanhoop en de heuse gekte in het slijk van de loopgraven, is het boek een weergaloos
