9780811713160: The Western Front Companion: The Complete Guide to How the Armies Fought for Four Devastating Years, 1914-1918

To comprehend and chronicle the sheer scale of the conflict on the Western Front demands a book of similar scope. Now, published for the centenary of the start of World War I in August 2014, here is that book. More than merely a chronological account of the fighting, The Western Front Companion is an astonishingly comprehensive and forensic anatomy of how and why the armies fought, of their weapons, equipment, and tactics, for over four long and bloody years, on a battlefield stretching from the Belgian coast to the Swiss frontier--a distance of 450 miles.

  • Comprehensive coverage of World War I's Western Front
  • Breaks down the battles that took place in France and Belgium from 1914 to 1918 in trenches and fields, on muddy river plains, and against forts
  • Covers the uniforms, equipment, and weaponry, as well as the strategy, tactics, and orders of battle of all sides
  • Impressively illustrated with color maps, diagrams, charts, drawings, and period photos
  • Includes modern-day photos overlaid with markings to show troop movements
  • Required reference for scholars and military history buffs as the war's 100th anniversary approaches
  • Die Inhaltsangabe kann sich auf eine andere Ausgabe dieses Titels beziehen.

    Review:

    "It's all here -- maps of the battles, pen portraits of the key commanders and expert analysis of the military strategy, as well as a host of extraordinary anecdotes. . . . The design is a model of clarity, the production first class, the attention to detail exemplary. In short, it's a triumph." (Daily Mail (UK) 2013-12-30)
