5.0 out of 5 stars When this lousy war is over, 28 Nov. 2008
This review is from: The British Soldier of the First World War (Shire Library) (Paperback)
When this lousy war is over

I pose the question are there any duff title in the Shire Library?

They are great little books at only 56 pages but they are stuffed full of information. The author has created a logic by dividing the chapter into joining the colours, in the trenches, at rest to being demobilised.

It is a guide to the life of the poor bloody infantry,Plenty of black and white and colour photographs of uniforms, badges medals and memorabilia

My dad served in the second world war but on page 13 I have photo of my dad after his basic training in his RAF uniform that is the dead spit of a First world ward soldier with his bayonet and rifle. So not a lot of changes took place between the war.

Equipment and tactics develop rapidly as the war goes on so by the end of the war usually the soldiers are dressed entirely differently

90 years on and the first world war has become an important historical event so more and more are studying it. I have been to the Western Front many times but there is always something new to learn and this is a great little book.

I bought my copy just outside the Menin gate in Ypres.
