Product Description

Review

Praise for Robin Neilland's previous books: (.)

Rarely has oral history been put to better use (Blake Morrison, Independent on Sunday)

'Immensely readable . . . a blast of fresh air. Anyone who aspires to the command of anything or opining a view of command should be forced to read it. A great blast of level-headedness' (The Spectator)

'Informed and explicit, this is military history at its best' (Western Daily Press)

'Excellent' (Literary Review)

'Highly readable' (Bookseller)

'Well researched and highly readable' (Blackpool Gazette)

'Neillands ... was not into simply chronicling the events of 1915, but rather has returned to a favourite subject -- the role of the generals and the scorn poured on their heads in later year' (Belfast Newsletter)

Book Description

1915. A terrible, seminal year for the allied effort in WW1, is investigated by respected military historian Robin Neillands

This is a very readable incisive critique of the British dimension of the western front in1915,marred by a constant stream of spelling, grammar and punctuation errors throughout. This is by far the worst example of poor translation of a book from paper to electronic format, which detracted from my enjoyment and in several places, my comprehension of the author's points.

It forms a good overall explanation and the details of the early years of the First World War - it is a good balanced and well thought out assessment of 1914 and 1915. It is a good book

In my opinion this is a better book than the one he wrote on the Normandy campaign. It is a well written overview of the disappointments sufferd by Britain's Imperial Armies and Allies in 1915 and is a must for the libraries of those who study, research or have an interest in WW1. The author was an ex-Royal Marine and he brings to the book a 'feel' for the ordinary man caught up in such horrendous events. I was fortunate to have studied with him and his death to cancer is deeply regretted.

It was extremely good. It was necessary to hang on to the various indicated time tables as the story unfolded
chapter by chapter, and the related Actions.

I assume that is the reason why you followed it with an extract of " War By Time Table " by AJP Taylor.

I have not been able to find a Kindle version of that Book.....????.

As a participant in WW2. I know that in general, when a situation of resistance was met the effort was made to go round it as soon as possible. and to contain the strong point until it could be overcome.
