Book Description

7 Nov 2013 Haynes Owners' Workshop Manuals
The Great War continues to fascinate, and never more so as we approach 2014, the centenary year of its outbreak. There is an abiding fascination in the uniform and equipment of the British Great War soldier. What was it like to wear? What were puttees? What does a gas mask look like? How heavy was the equipment? How did you dig a trench? These and other typical questions will be answered in Haynes Manual style, providing a vivid insight into life during the Great War for the average 'Tommy Atkins'.

More About the Author

Peter Doyle is a geologist with a life-long interest in military history. A specialist studying the role that terrain has had to play in two centuries of warfare, his interests nevertheless extend beyond the scientific. He has written extensively on the British experience of warfare in the two world wars - illustrated with artefacts of those wars. He believes that objects have a tale to tell; he has tried to translate that for the general public.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Details 12 Jan 2014
By PT
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book, which arrived very quickly, contains fascinating details of the ordinary soldier's life - training, equipment, routines, trench systems, etc. If you had a relative who served on the Western Front in WW1 and want to find out what life warlike for him, then I recommend this.

This book is very concise, but the information doesn't feel too heavy going. It's well laid out and easy to understand. I would recommend this for all ages who are interested in learning about the British in WW1.

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful introduction ... 21 Dec 2013
By T
Format:Hardcover
... to a complex subject. Accessible and well written. Weights of grenades & ant-gas appliances would be welcome. Runs aground on the First Day of the Somme instead of emphasising that it was the Entente that won the War and NOT the Central Powers. Could be worse.
