2014 - 100th Anniversary World War One (1914-1918): Maps, Photographs and Famous Leaders.
5 Stars. Amazon Review by 'Worktop.'
Very Good. Have told a number of people about it.
4 Star Review. Eric Wallace (Australian Site).
A fascinating account of life in the trenches during WW1, which was the so-called "War to end all wars".
5 Star Amazon Review. Squadron Leader. Raymond Leach (MBE).
A fascinating read. I have read little on British Snipers; plenty about the Germans' depredations. This is one for the bookshelf.
5 Stars. Amazon Review by 'Minnie.'
Good Piece of History.
At the beginning of WW1, German snipers executed mass killings along the trenches of Flanders and France. Sniper bullets cut down thousands of Kitcheners' soldiers in the prime of life. Amidst, exploding shells and smoke, a carnage of mangled corpses sank in a sea of mud. The Kaiser's crack shot marksmen were off to a winning start.
In 1915, British battalions were losing 12 to 18 men a day, at the hands of snipers, firing behind bullet-proof steel loop-hole plates, that the British could not penetrate. In response, the British army hit back with their own division of snipers. Arnold Crabtree, my Great-Uncle-In-Law was one of them. A young Mill Worker from Rochdale, England, who became a war hero at 21. This is his story.
