This is an auction for THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM BOOK OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR, by Malcolm Brown.

Subtitled "A Great Conflict Recalled in Previously Unpublished Letters, Diaries, Documents and Memoirs".

"In essence, as Brown states in his preface, the Imperial War Museum is the author of this thought provoking compilation of moving textual and stunning visual records of the First World War, 1914-1918. The Museum was established in the wake of the greatest conflagration the world had ever known and has an almost inexhaustible reserve of pictures, posters, postcards, photographs, films, pamphlets, books, diaries, letters, and documents detailing the British effort to fight and win 'the war to end all wars.' The author does not attempt to present a comprehensive study but rather one that leans towards areas in which the Museum's holdings are rich. Thus, the British role on the Western Front is emphasized although other wartime operations such as Gallipoli, Salonika, and the Middle East are not ignored. While the war was highly political and technological, the focus of this book is on the personal and the particular. The subject matter is not war so much as people caught up in war, and the author clearly intends to provide a fresh look at the First World War which is as precise and objective as possible yet spiritually enriching. Strong editorialship is utilized to weave together personal profiles and special features with linking narrative prose which is clearly written and assimilated. In these pages great political and military figures such as David Lloyd George, Winston Churchill, and Douglas Haig appear remote and somewhat dehumanized."
