Charting the Allies' entry into warfare in 1914, Max Arthur tells the story in words and pictures of the new conscripted army's life through the five years of slaughter and suffering. He brilliantly conveys not only the heroism, but also the universal horror, futility, humour and boredom of warfare. From the front-line troops and the daily dice with death, to the support lines, communications, enlistment, training and propaganda, every aspect of the soldier's life is covered in this brilliant collection of images and interviews that brings the Great War to life once more.
