This 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. 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. It includes masses of intricate full colour maps and diagrams, illustrating particular offensives, battles, raids or tactics, the configurations of trench formations or the trajectory of mortar bombardments. But this conflict was also the first to be chronicled from the start by photography, and the book does it full justice with over 200 resonant and remarkable archive images, many rarely seen. These are complemented with modern colour photographs showing how historic battlefields look nowadays.

by Billy Congreve and Editor Terry Norman

A VC's Diary, 1914-1916. William La Touche (Billy) Congreve was an an exceptional man. By the time he was killed on the Somme in July 1916 at the age of twenty-five he had been awarded the DSO, MC, the Légion d'Honneur, and a posthumous VC. Born into a military family (his father had also won the VC) he became a regular soldier in the Rifle Brigade and in France became a staff officer. He chose to be in the front line as often as he could, making his remarkable diaries all the more valuable since he writes from the thick of the fighting and yet retains an objectivity that enables him to observe all that is going on around him both in the trenches and at HQ.

by John Giles

A classic Battlefield Guide from the 'After the Battle' team. In this revised edition John Giles has succeeded in recapturing the atmosphere of an era when men fought savage battles in and around water-filled trenches, amongst the stinking litter of war. Eye-witness accounts of the bitter fighting are blended with contemporary photographs and comparison pictures taken by the author of the same places today. The result is a salute to all those men who marched along the roads of Picardy to the trenches of the Somme battleground, many of whom never returned.

SOMME 1916
by Paul Kendall

Success and Failure on the First Day of the Battle of the Somme. Much controversy has surrounded the offensive and its impact upon the course of the war. Sir Douglas Haig's policies have been the subject of considerable debate about whether the heavy losses sustained were worth the small gains that were achieved and which appeared to have little strategic value. That was certainly the case on many sectors on 1 July 1916, where British soldiers were unable to cross No Man's Land and failed to reach, or penetrate into, the German trenches.

by John Lee

The mist of poisonous gas that drifted across no man's land from the German trenches opposite the Ypres salient on 22 April, 1915 caused ghastly casualties and suffering among the unprepared defenders, and it opened up a seven-mile gap in the defensive line. It signalled the beginning of a new and frightful era of warfare. John Lee's graphic and perceptive reassessment of this milestone in the history of the Great War, and of the gruelling full-scale battle that followed, is one of the best studies of this historical event.

In 1915 Lord Kitchener extended his famous “Your Country Needs You”. In south-west London, the response from two neighbouring boroughs, Wandsworth and Battersea, could not have been more different. In Wandsworth the Mayor took up the challenge and recruited, for the East Surrey Regiment, double the number of men needed for an infantry battalion. Battersea too raised a full infantry battalion pledged to the Queen’s (Royal West Surrey) Regiment. Wandsworth’s 13th East Surreys and Battersea’s 10th Queen’s both served with honour and distinction on the Western Front.

The 1914 Battle of the Aisne, officially from 12th to 15th September, came about as a result of the German retirement from the Battle of the Marne, which took place further south as the armies of France and Germany jostled for position almost within sight of Paris. By the time the British arrived on the Aisne the battle line stretched some 150 miles from Noyon in the west to Verdun in the east. The British Expeditionary fought bitter engagements, which took place in difficult conditions and casualties were heavy.

by Prit Buttar

The massive offensives on the Eastern Front during 1915 are often overshadowed by the events in Western Europe, but the scale and ferocity of the clashes between Imperial Germany, Hapsburg Austria-Hungary and Tsarist Russia were greater than anything seen on the Western Front. The author examines the critical events of 1915, as the German Gorlice-Tarnow Offensive triggered the collapse of Russian forces. Throughout the year, German dominance on the Eastern Front grew - but stubborn Russian resistance forced the continuation of a two-front war that would drain Germany's reserves of men and equipment.
