Shire Publications Shire General What Tommy Took to War - 1914-1918 (MINT/New)

A century may now have passed since the Great War, but the stories of everyday soldiers serving in miserable and life-threatening conditions still have a sobering sense of immediacy. Personal records, photographs and sentimental possessions that bring us even closer to the soldier as a person have often become valuable heirlooms, passed down through the generations. Nothing better depicts an individual soldier than these items, which were kept about his person and in his kitbag, and which constituted all his worldly possessions while on service in the trenches. This book looks at fifty objects with which every Tommy would have been familiar, from official uniform and equipment to good-luck charms and letters from sweethearts. With each artifact - be it an identity disc, training manual, packet of cigarettes, postcard or foreign phrasebook - the accompanying text explains the significance of all the things that, together, help to define him both as a man and as a soldier.
