Imperial War Museum Book of the Western Front

The First World War was won and lost on the Western Front. It was in France and Belgium that the horrific nature of trench warfare scarred not only the landscape and those who fought there, but also the imagination of succeeding generations. Covering the whole war, from the guns of August 1914 to the sudden silence of the November 1918 Armistice, the IWM Book of the Western Front reveals what life was really like for the men and women involved. With first-hand accounts of off-duty entertainments, trench fatalism, and going over the top, this is an extremely important contribution to the continuing debate on the First World War. Malcolm Brown has updated this edition, introducing new evidence on sex and homosexuality, executions, the treatment or mistreatment of prisoners and shell shock. 'A blockbuster . . . as near as anyone is likely to get to the authentic life of the trenches' Yorkshire Post
