Product Description


Sheffield...sets out the arguments for an interpretation not based exclusively on the war poets, Alan Clark and Blackadder...One can only hope that his compassionate, clearly argued book will displace the [mythical] version (David Horspool, Guardian)

This is revisionist history at its best - thought provoking and original (Trevor Royle, Sunday Herald)

An important book that shatters many myths about the First World War (Richard Holmes)

Amongst the most important books to have been published on the Great War for some years. Very strongly recommended (Stand To!)
