WAR ON THE WESTERN FRONT.  IN THE TRENCHES OF WORLD WAR I

Details

World War I stands as a watershed in the evolution of modern warfare with the development of sophisticated trench systems forming a battlefield over 400 miles long innovations in weaponry and equipment and the introduction of tanks in battle. Without the ordinary soldier however there could have been no war: the Great War was very much a conflict of infantrymen – the largely forgotten masses of Tommies Fritzes Poilus and Doughboys. With a foreword by renowned World War I historian Gary Sheffield War on the Western Front examines the day-to-day lives of these men as they fought and died in the trenches from their recruitment and training to combat experience vividly recounting the shock of life on ‘the front’. It also provides an extensive re-assessment of trench warfare a revolutionary tactic that challenged the very idea of war and details developments in weaponry and armoured vehicles including terrifying innovations in the use of poison gas flamethrowers and tanks.
