The Imperial War Museum Book of the Western Front, Paperback Book

The Imperial War Museum Book of the Western Front Paperback


The First World War was won and lost on the Western Front.

Covering the whole war, from the guns of August 1914 to the sudden silence of the November 1918 Armistice, the IWM Book of the Western Front reveals what life was really like for the men and women involved.

With first-hand accounts of off-duty entertainments, trench fatalism, and going over the top, this is an extremely important contribution to the continuing debate on the First World War.

Malcolm Brown has updated this edition, introducing new evidence on sex and homosexuality executions, the treatment or mistreatment of prisoners and shell shock.
