War on the Western Front

War on the Western Front

This book is a collection of essays by well known First World War contributors such as Dr Stephen Bull, Ian Drury, Thomas A. Hoff, Martin Pegler and Ian Sumner. 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 – Tommies, Stormtrooper, Poilus and Doughboys.

War on the Western Front 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.
