4.0 out of 5 stars It's a lap crusher!, 2 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Western Front Companion: The Complete Guide to How the Armies Fought for Four Devastating Years, 1914-1918 (Hardcover)
Well this is a mighty piece of work. I have Mark Adkin's Trafalgar which is a mighty read too, but this is not quite the same format. The information here is huge; there are loads of maps, period photos, actual photos of the western front today and diagrams. I may be atypical but I like diagrams and this volume has fewer than I was expecting. The ones that are there are very clear but I would have liked more technical detail, cutaways etc. There are masses of maps though; these take a bit of studying and, for navigation, could do with an inset map of where they are situated in the context of the western front. A superb piece of work but it is marginally short of my expectations - don't let this put you off though as its a great addition to a book shelf.
