Description:
TO COMPREHEND AND CHRONICLE the sheer scale of the conflict on the Western Front demands a book of similar scope. Now, published for the centenary of the start of World War I in August 2014, here is that book. Written by the author of the three previous bestselling Companions on Waterloo, Trafalgar and Gettysburg - now acclaimed as the definitive work of reference on each battle - The Western Front Companion is not a mere chronological account of the fighting. Rather, it is an astonishingly comprehensive and forensic anatomy of how and why the armies fought, of their weapons, equipment and tactics, for over four long and bloody years on a battlefield that stretched from the Belgian coast to the Swiss frontier - a distance of 450 miles. Alongside the British Army, full coverage is given to Britain's allies - France, Belgium, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, India and the United States - as well as the Germans. The 350,000 words of text range over everything from the railways on the front to the medical corps and the chaplains.
An introduction explaining why the world went to war is followed by a year-by-year enumeration of the critical events and battles and then sections examining all branches of the armies, including commanders, staff, infantry, artillery, cavalry, engineers, supply and transport, veterinary, tanks and aviation, followed by one on trench warfare and another on the pivitol Battle of Cambrai with its massed use of tanks.
