World War I has long been acknowledged as one of the great traumas of modern history. In this conflict the Western Front - for the British, the French, the Americans and the principal enemy, the Germans - was the central stage ... This book includes material from the enormous archives of the Imperial War Museum, from first-hand contemporary accounts and letters. All aspects are dealt with: the great battles such as the Somme, Passchendaele, Ludendorf's final offensive, and the experiences of subalterns, privates, gunners, nurses, Australians, war artists and officers.--Publisher's description
