The First World War has left an almost indelible mark on history, with battles such as the Somme and Passchendaele becoming watchwords for suffering unsurpassed. The dreadful fighting on the Western Front, and elsewhere in the world, remains vivid in the public imagination. Over the years dozens of books have been published dealing with the soldier's experience, the military history and the weapons and vehicles of the war, but there has been little devoted to the objects associated with those hard years in the trenches. This book redresses that balance. With hundreds of carefully captioned photographs of items that would have been part of the everyday life for the British Tommy; from recruitung posters, uniforms and entrenching equipment to games, posrcards and pieces of 'trench art', this book brings to life the experience of the Great War soldier through the objects with which he would have been surrounded. AUTHOR: Peter Doyle is a scientist and military historian specializing in the role of terrain in warfare, with particular reference to the Great War. Secretary of the Parlimentary All Party War Graves and Battlefield Heritage Group, and a member of the British Commission for Military History, he has been collecfting objects relating to the role of Britain in both world wars all his life. This is his second book on military memorabilia. 564 colour photos
