The content and bibliography both show that the author is well up with the latest research. This would be a really good book for anybody wanting to challenge traditional view of World War I. I would challenge anybody to read it and still say that the tactics and techniques of June 1917 were anything but imaginative, highly organised and based on the best available technology. --Military Modelcraft International
