Description

The First World War has left an almost indelible mark on history, with battles such as the Somme and Passchendaele becoming watchwords for suffering unsurpassed. The dreadful fighting on the Western Front, and elsewhere in the world, remains vivid in the public imagination.  Over the years dozens of books have been published dealing with the soldier's experience, the military history and the weapons and vehicles of the war,  but there has been little devoted to the objects associated with those hard years in the trenches.  This book readdresses that balance.

The author

Peter Doyle is a military historian and author who has written widely on the First World War. He is a visiting Professor at University College London and is co-secretary of the All-Party Parliamentary War Heritage Group. He lives in Essex.
